New employee - Sigurgeir Kristjansson
I, Sigurgeir (Sigge) Kristjansson, has joined SiTek on the research and development side. While burning through shoe leather playing football, I discovered an interest for Physics during my teenage years on the outskirts of Reykjavik, Iceland. Very early on, my interests were strongly bent towards Optics.
After Physics studies at San Jose State University in the Silicon Valley and a few years of science work at the University of Iceland I joined Professor Anders Larsson’s group at Chalmers University of Technology here in Göteborg. I finished my PhD in 2001 with my thesis titled: “Grating-Coupled Surface-Emitting Laser – Circular and Unstable Resonator Geometries”.
After five more years in Silicon Valley, spent on research and development at Melles Griot and Nova Crystals on lasers as well as APD and PIN detectors, me, my wife and our two kids are back in Sweden again and I am very excited about the research and development
work that now awaits at SiTek.
New employee - Nicole Andersson
My name is Nicole Andersson and I am working in SiTeks administration department.
My work at SiTek consists of a large variety of tasks and includes everything from answering the phone to annual reports.
I was born in Holland, but moved to Sweden 1988 to live with my Swedish
boyfriend. We are now married and have two sons, 9 and 12 years old. I’ve been working as a nurse both in Holland and Sweden, but decided to re-educate into a new professional direction because I found it more interesting to work with accounting. In my spare time I like to go for a walk with friends, picking mushrooms and reading. My favourite activity during the summer is taking a swim in a small lake close by.
I felt welcome from the start at SiTek and enjoy working here very much. The work itself is fun and inspiring, and the good team spirit makes it a pleasure to go to work!
