Hi there!

about myself

I have been away from Citizendium for quite a while now, but am still interested in the project.

I am a civil engineer, living and working in Sweden for a company creating electronics equipment for mobile machinery.

My interests in CZ lie in the areas of Positioning, Construction Technology, Safety, Project Management and adjoining areas.
