More about Signe

Signe holds an honours master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark. Her thesis was on modelling and simulation of gas-lubricated bearings based on a multi-domain approach towards controllable injection of gas.

Prior to finishing her studies, she spent two and a half years as an assistant engineer at Technolution, working on various MedTech projects. Her earlier employments include engineering consultancy MOE A/S, The Zanvyl Krieger Mind/Brain Institute at the Johns Hopkins University, and work as a teaching assistant at DTU.

Through her studies at DTU and her part-time work experience, Signe has developed skills within various disciplines, including dynamics and vibrations, mathematical modelling, simulation, Finite Element Modelling, statistics, communication, and various aspects of product development. Supplementing her studies at DTU, Signe has studied one semester at the Johns Hopkins University, gaining insight into different aspects of biomedical and biomechanical engineering, spanning from neuroscience to rehabilitation engineering.
