“ASE Optics offers the possibility to participate in a growing reality, where there is still space to learn, evolve professionally, design new solutions and come up with innovative ideas”.
I am an astrophysicist, an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer, with love for understanding how the things work. I specialized in solid state detectors for imaging and learned computer programming along the way. I participated in characterising, assembling and controlling complex imaging sensors both in astronomy and medicine, in academia and industry.
What is your role in ASE Optics Europe?
I entered ASE Optics Europe as an imaging scientist and, due to the implications of imaging technologies for ASE’s products, I was soon designing complete software systems for the automated control of a broad range of devices. Currently, I am a System Software Engineer.
What did you like about ASE Optics when you decided to apply for the job?
I liked the possibility to participate in a growing reality, where there is space to learn, evolve professionally, design new solutions and come up with innovative ideas.
What do you like most about working at ASE Optics?
Openness towards innovative solutions, but with a sound basis. I always believed that the best products provide sensible solutions to well-defined problems.
At the human level, ASE Optics makes it possible to maintain contact with all colleagues and to understand each other’s needs both on a general level and in one’s own area of professional specialisation. We know how to adapt to every situation that comes our way, which generates a lot of confidence in each other and in ourselves at the same time. It is very rewarding.
Tell us about one of the biggest challenges you have faced: how did you overcome it?
Obviously, each project is unique, and presents its own challenges and specifications to which we must respond. I value everything I learn from each of them and what they bring to me professionally. As well as continuing to gain experience in innovation that allows ASE Optics to grow and expand its know-how.
A very significant example for me was learning quaternions and how to use them, and finally implementing them in a software library to guide a robotic arm in real time.
Describe ASE Optics in one sentence.
A place where solutions are made true.
