    At Sistemdinamika, I have enjoyed owning my own company and working as an independent consultant immensely. Over the last years I have consulted on projects dealing with automotive brake-by-wire systems, low tire pressure detection systems, automatic transmission controls, and 'big data' in-vehicle live data streaming and systems monitoring projects. I have also worked on commercial shipping, miniature satellite, and renewable (wind) energy projects.
