Niels Vesterdal

Position: Research Engineer
Education: Industrial Ph.D. at TUD/Thrane & Thrane 2007; M.Sc., Electrical Engineering at TUD, May, 2004
Specialization: Reflector antenna design, computational electromagnetics
With TICRA since: 2012
Prior to joining TICRA Niels Vesterdal was employed at Thrane & Thrane where he conducted an Industrial PhD study on Phased Array Antennas for Mobile Communications. Subsequently, from 2007 to 2012, he worked at the R&D department at Thrane & Thrane, primarily designing user terminal antennas for mobile satellite communication in the L-, Ku-, and Ka-bands. In 2006 Niels spent 6 months at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena as a visiting scholar.
