Dustin Jefferson Onghanseng
uHoo | CEO & Co-Founder
I worked with Daniel on two occasions. First was designing the first prototype of an air sensor. Second was during a 24-hour hackathon in building the first prototype of what uHoo is today.
His academic background is Mechanical Engineering, but during the hackathon he quickly activated his full engineering skillset and was able to integrate electronic components and write firmware that made the entire prototype work flawlessly during the presentation to the judges. He covered every aspect needed to be an excellent hardware engineer.
Besides his technical know-how, he has good communication skills. He can elaborate and explain technical concepts in a way that is easy for non-technical people to understand. Having lived overseas, he is culturally sensitive and a fun person to have conversations with. He's an asset to have on your team.

HKUST | PhD candidate
Daniel was my partner at the HKUST robotics lab. He is a talented engineer and very helpful as a team member. He is able to quickly validate an idea and learn any necessary skill to execute it. He has a wide and solid skillset and broad vision. He has worked with leading edge scientists in robotics and with his contribution, our team published a paper in ICRA 2015.
Daniel is a good time manager: After a detailed and thorough planning, he delivers results in time and does not rush at the expense of quality. He always keeps a positive mood; therefore, working with him is quite an amazing experience. Besides his work in my lab, he engaged with the local community of Makers, exchanging ideas and offering help within his skillset.
I am sure that Daniel is a perfect candidate for a project that requires careful design and quick prototyping. His strong hands-on skills, theoretical background and analytical thinking will ensure a successful outcome.
