Following my own inquisitiveness has always paid off for me. At an information event in my secondary school, a former pupil reported on his study of electrical engineering and computer science. From that moment on, I knew that I would like to do that too, because I have always been keen on technology. After a few minor detours and gaining my PhD, today I am involved in work on the development and optimization of analog components of measuring equipment. Together with my colleagues, I produce, for example, designs for analog and high frequency circuits, characterize and optimize the measuring accuracy and support the transfer of our developments into production.
The tasks are varied and challenging – in terms of planning but also in their execution. I learn more every day – that is what distinguishes a fulfilling job for me. Looking back I can say that in my strategic career decisions I have always allowed myself to be guided by my interests and my curiosity - and not by market analyses or (job) trends. And I can highly recommend this approach. By choosing what to study in line with your personal interests you are building on your strengths. Then it is easy to dedicate yourself passionately to your tasks and to learn new things. At the same time, it increases the probability that working in that particular field will not only continue to be a pleasure, but will also prove successful.

"For an optimal balance between job and private life, one needs understanding and an optimal work environment on the part of the employer, as well as open communication and responsibility for their own interests on the part of employees. I have found this environment at Rohde & Schwarz."
"The fascination of my work is to be involved with technical product innovations and to experience technical progress in this area on a daily basis. For example, with the very latest, most advanced smartphone generation that has not yet been launched on the market."
