  • Hydrocontest

    Hydrocontest is the first international competition devoted to maritime energy efficiency. As a lead embedded software engineer, I was directly involved in both hardware and software aspects of designing an unmanned racing boat. This project taught me how to work efficiently in a team of experts with backgrounds different from my own.

  • CNC Milling Machine

    The project target was the design and construction of the custom CNC milling machine. Besides development, as a lead embedded software engineer, I was also tasked with daily collaboration with an international team of mechanical engineers. After project completion, the resulting machine was donated to the University of Split to allow students more learning opportunities across fields impacted by CNC machines.

  • Path Processor

    Minimalistic command line STL to G-Code converter for CNC milling machines. This project was a part of my bachelor's thesis, which was about using collision detection to generate an efficient CNC milling machine path for a given 3D model.

  • Data Entry SPA

    Web SPA is used internally by SiegeGG employees to gather data about ongoing esports competitions, matches, and players. I collaborated on both the frontend (React + TypeScript) and the backend (Node.js + ExpressJS).
