About Matt

I was born in the late 70's in the German part of Switzerland and graduated from Electrical Engineering at HSR (Fachhochschule Rapperswil, Switzerland) in 2003. After graduating, I continued at HSR as a Research Assistant and in 2006 joined DALSA as a CMOS Design Engineer. I have been involved in numerous 2D and 1D CMOS projects as a design engineer and project lead since then.
