ESR 12 – George Pasparakis, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universitaet Hannover, Germany

I am an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) at the Institute of Risk and Reliability in Hanover, Germany as part of the DyVirt European Training Network. I was born in Athens in 1994 and received my Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Thessaly in 2018 with a specialisation in Mechanics, Materials and Manufacturing Processes. My Diploma thesis employed a dual Kalman filtering scheme for joint input and state estimation in mass chain like models the results of which were implemented in a subsequent fatigue analysis. During my studies I also completed my internship at an Engineering-Procurement firm with a main focus on 3 D component design. Currently my research area focuses on signal processing, stochastic structural dynamics, spectral analysis, wavelet analysis and compressive sensing.
