Panagiotis Vavatsikos

Position: Control Engineer at Siemens
Technical University of Denmark (DTU) - M.Sc., Automation and Robot Technology

Panagiotis has 4+ years of experience working as a Control Engineer in Denmark. After his studies, he joined Danfoss Drives, working extensively with Matlab and Simulink creating algorithms for motor and drives applications. In his current position as Control Engineer in Siemens Gamesa, Panagiotis is developing control algorithms for wind turbines and therefore has a strong background on power energy systems and electrical machines. In his work and during his studies, he has gained experience with mathematical modelling and optimization, control of a wide range of dynamical systems and establishing effective data collection and measurement systems.

MOTIVATION

Panagiotis would like to become a mentor because he believes this could be useful both for him and a student. Personally, he thinks it is a good opportunity for him to further develop his communication skills and keep a connection to academia. He would be able to possibly help a mentee find a good and meaningful job in Denmark, making use of his insight into the Danish labor market. Moreover, Panagiotis can share his experiences from being a student and employee in Denmark, and if possible, use his network to open doors for the student.
