Course Author


With a distinguished career in maritime engineering, I bring to the table a wealth of experience from both practical and academic perspectives. I served for over a decade as a marine engineer at sea, mentoring numerous cadets throughout my tenure, with my most recent role being that of a chief engineer.

Over the past seven years, I have pursued an advanced academic path and proudly hold a Master's Degree and a PhD in Maritime Affairs from two prestigious European universities.

My academic pursuits didn't confine me to the classroom. I have actively participated in European maritime research projects as a consultant, continually updating my knowledge across various shipping facets, including the regulatory framework, decarbonization, safety, and marine environmental pollution prevention.

Since 2017, I have transitioned into academia, utilizing my hands-on experience and scholarly insights to impart maritime knowledge. I've been involved in a broad spectrum of STCW and IMO courses, delivering lectures to marine officers at various institutes and academies across Europe.
