2019 Winner Vattenfall solar team design competition
2018 National Runner up James Dyson AwardsThe Arcx prosthesis project is awarded with the national Runner up price at the 2018 James Dyson Awards.
2018 Winner Nuon solar team design competition Together with Clement Heinen I entered the design competition of the TU Delft Nuon Solar team, a yearly design competition for the wrap of the Nuon Solar car.

2017 Exceed! '17 My bachelor thesis project Elrogga was selected to be one of the most interesting projects at the faculty conducted in 2015. My design was featured in the Exceed catalogue and exposed at the faculty.
2017 Patent NL2020034 for Adjustable prosthesis joint of Arcx Prosthesis One of the features of our prosthesis was unique enough to get patented and used for future developed.
2015 Winner Bluedot Design Competition I designed a table that is made of strokes of felt. It was an experiment of exploring the possibilities to create strong and stiff structures with a material that is usually seen as soft and bendable. Folding the felt in the right way creates a strong structure that can support a big load.
2012 Winner Imagine Life Sciences school competition In this competition three students and I, wrote a business plan and developed a way to implement self-healing concrete on irrigation canals in Ecuador. In 2014 a pilot canal has been realised in Ambato Ecuador in an association with the TU Delft and Universidad Católica de Santiago de Guayaquil, UCSG.
