One day after an intake interview at Euflex in April 2009, I started working as a secretary at the SPS group (EE). First on a temporary basis, soon on a permanent contract. Learning how the university works at all levels made me decide to join the University Council in 2014 (after being elected, of course). 8 years dealing with financial budgets, teaching, research, real estate and very importantly all types of HR matters in the UC, are useful, even in my current job. In addition to my work in the Control Systems group, I have taken on the task of organizing BAC meetings for the EE department. Never a dull moment working at the TU/e!
