|Team Members Corner_Rafael, materials specialist|
My name is Rafael Jeppesen and I live in Aarhus, Denmark. I completed my master’s degree in Nanoscience at Aarhus University in 2019 within the field of materials science where I worked with thermoelectric materials. The past two years I have continued working at Aarhus University as a research assistant, where I have participated in scientific and industrial projects in collaboration with TEGnology. Our work focuses on optimizing and developing their components in thermoelectric modules. On February 1st, 2022, I began working as their new Development Engineer, Materials Specialist, which is a permanent position.
In my spare time, I like to stay active and healthy which means I am up for almost any sporting activity. I spend a lot of my spare time running, as I am planning to complete the Berlin marathon this fall. I also greatly enjoy spending time with my friends. We often go downtown for a delicious meal and beer, play videogames, watch a movie, play some board games or just chill out together.
Other special hobbies of mine are fishing and life outdoors. I also like gin and tonics, and I always have several different bottles of gin and tonic water at home to spoil my guests or just myself.
