New Customer Segments Development Leader – North America at ZEISS in Minneapolis, USA

1. How did your passion for metrology arise? 
I’ve been active in the quality assurance industry for over 20 years, and my passion for metrology grows with each day. I have met many interesting people and have seen so many clever processes but what excites me most is that our solutions constantly help innovation in the world and also help the world ­become more sustainable. I mean, we only have one world, right?

2. As New Customer Segment Development Leader for the North America region – can you explain what the new customer segments are? 
New Customer Segments refers to some of the latest industry trends, like New Energy Vehicles (NEV), Electronics, Medical Industry Solutions and Aerospace. We consider it our task to support these industries and a growing list of others with our comprehensive portfolio and quality assurance solutions and to shape progress and growth. 

3. How thin is the human hair? 
[laughing] People make fun of me about that all the time! In our first few #measuringhero episodes I really didn’t know what to say, so I constantly brought up this fact! I know for sure that a human hair is around 100 microns thin.

You only measure as good as the influences allow you to. Keep user and environmental influences as low as possible. The use of modern measurement technology and software is also very important for precise measurement.

In the #measuringhero forum, topics related to ZEISS CALYPSO are the ones most often discussed. This shows the importance in practical use. ZEISS CALYPSO has many functions, simple evaluations and is very user-friendly.

3. What role does coffee play in your daily life? 
A veeeery big role!!! I love coffee and I need at least one big cup to start in a good day. I like to try different varieties, but I still love Brazilian coffee the most.
