Michail Pligouroudis 

PhD Researcher - Electronics Engineer

Michail is electronics engineer and entrepreneur with multiple honorary awards for academic excellence. He is the inventor of a PCB construction patent and candidate for a second one. He founded an electronics company, specialized on FPGA architecture consultancy and PCB designing. The company is fully equipped with a high end laboratory offering testing and fabrication services for digital and analogue electronics. Some of his ideas ranked amongst the top 10 innovative business ideas in the UK from the Royal Academy of Engineering. In the beginning of his career, he worked as an intern electronics engineer in one of the renowned research institutes for heavy ion acceleration called GSI located in Germany. He is experienced in R&D management and digital electronics designing (specialty FPGAs) in scientific and industrial applications. Lastly he is trained on DAQ systems by CERN, and IP protection strategies from the Industrial Property Organization.
