Carrying on with the vision and goals of the first board of ASE ‘Aeolus’, we begin the third year of the association within the EWEM program. We are looking forward to a year full of activities, networking and growth for all the members, and bridging the companies in the wind energy industry with our students, striving for a greener future. Below you can read something about our personal background and ambition within the association. If you want to contact the board, please use the contact form.

Jaime Liew

President

My name is Jaime Liew and I am the President of ASE ‘Aeolus’. I am in charge of representing the association in educational and professional matters, while overviewing the effective performance of the association.

I hold a double bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering and Finance from the University of Adelaide, Australia. I found my passion for wind energy and aerodynamics during my time abroad in Denmark, which is why I chose to study the Rotor Design track of the EWEM Program. As part of Aeolus, my aim is to represent and promote academic, social and professional networks for the students of EWEM, and to present the best opportunities in the field of wind energy.

My name is Ottelien Bossuyt and I am the Treasurer of ASE ‘Aeolus’. As the Treasurer my main responsibilities are the finances and the member administration of the association. Furthermore, I help out overseeing the Wiki committee.

I am from Belgium and have a master degree in Energy Engineering from KU Leuven, where I developed my interest in wind energy.  As a Rotor Design EWEM student, I am impressed by the close collaboration with the universities, the network with companies and the diverse international environment among the students. I believe Aeolus plays an important role in this and my aim is to strengthen these relations to give all EWEM students the best opportunities available.

I have completed two internships at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s National Wind Technology Center in Boulder, CO. My main focus to to expand and develop the relationships between our current students, alumni, and the wind energy industry.

I am Andrés Antonio Seijas, and I am the Secretary of ASE ‘Aeolus’. I keep track of meetings, social media and emails.

I joined Aeolus because I believe this organization is a melting point for ideas and proposals that will spread the influence that EWEM and students have on the industry and academia. I have an Electrical Engineer Degree from The University of The Andes (ULA in Spanish) in Venezuela. I believe renewable energy is the future, and as an engineer I want to get engage in its establishment as the next main energy source of the world.

Katrin Ritter

General Operations Manager

My name is Katrin Ritter and I am the General Operations Manager (GOM) of Aeolus. My responsibility is mainly to organise and coordinate educational and social events.

I am from Berlin, Germany and hold a degree in Maritime Technology with specialisation on wind turbine technology which I completed as a dual student with a wind turbine company in Bremerhaven. During my bachelors, I gained knowledge and experience in the wind turbine industry which I want to improve and deepen during this Master program. As I am mostly interested in data and measurement analysis I enrolled in wind physics track. I am looking forward to working with Aeolus in organising educational and social events to make the EWEM an even more enjoyable programme.
