His experience and education has focused on the numerical analysis using different techniques and tools. His ambition is to employ his engineering and research background to improve the quality of life through developing novel technologies. His experience covers a variety of topics including numerical modelling techniques (i.e. FVM, FEM and FSI) and experience in different multi-disciplinary projects (i.e. Biofluids, Biomedical Eng., Medical assist devices).

Noël Bijl

Noël Bijl, MSc. is senior technical consultant with In Summa Innovation since May 2020. Until May 2020, Noël worked on international level for Fokker Aerostructures for over 15 years as a finite element key-user, and for over 8 years as a functional support manager responsible for the stress applications in use at Fokker Aerostructures and later GKN Fokker.
At In Summa Innovation Noël is getting acquainted with other MSC products like Marc/Mentat, Nastran Embedded (Vibration) Fatigue, CAEfatigue and so on. His goal is to support In Summa Innovation’s many customers and provide them high-level services.


Maaike van Lienden

Graduated in Mathematical Engineering in February 2020. At In Summa Innovation she found the challenge she was looking for; a dive into the world of Simulation Process and Data Management. Likes to use her mathematical precision for baking pies.  


Jurgen Thier

A professional who takes care of all financial accounting so that the rest of the company can focus on the core business. Jurgen makes sure the figures are correct, always available for our team and presented to the authorities on time. Creating a calm environment and a clear overview for everyone involved in driving the business forward.

Melissa Mehlbaum

Went from Student to Specialist. Started at In Summa Innovation for her graduation internship (studied Oriental Languages & Communication – Japanese). During, she got infected with our passion for tech so she just had to stay, despite little technical knowledge.
Likes cooking (& eating), travelling (Japan is her 2nd home), fitness and snowboarding. Loves to learn about all the cool and geeky products and projects our customers create. Always looking for a way to add some creativity in a high-tech world.

Anton van Daal

Owner of In Summa. Has pretty impressive tennis skills. Anton loves to help companies innovate, save cost, improve quality, and test as well as shorten time2market using MSC Software Simulation.
A very curious guy by nature with a profound interest in the galaxy, he mastered the sociotechnical (re)designing of production environments at the Technical University of Eindhoven, combining people and technology. Anton believes that simple solutions are always the best ones. With In Summa he’s working towards a more sustainable world.

Inge Barendregt

Besides personal growth and working result-oriented on projects for our customers, we also feel it’s important to keep the In Summa team spirit. Drinks, a day out, interactive knowledge sessions…. “The more fun you have in your job, the better you perform” is our motto. Technical, high-quality solutions and outstanding service is what makes In Summa. This, combined with an informal working atmosphere and a healthy dose of ambition is what makes In Summa Innovation a challenging employer!
