Evangelos Stefanidis

Ph.D. Student

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Evangelos Stefanidis is a Ph.D. student in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Connecticut. He embarked on his undergraduate education pursuing a degree in Electronic Engineering. During his studies, he was awarded the ‘Leonardo da Vinci Scholarship’ and commenced an internship with a robotics company in Stuttgart, Germany. He was engaged as an Electronic Engineer in multiple business sectors: Olympic Games and events broadcasting, consulting, security systems and automation operations in Austria, Belgium, China, Germany, Greece and Italy. After a multi-round recruitment and selection process, he secured a competitive position with ‘Hellenic Petroleum,’ the leading energy conglomerate in Greece and the Balkans. He was then accepted to the National Technical University of Athens, where he completed a second bachelor’s degree and a Master in Chemical Engineering. During this five-year program, he studied the rules of Chemical Engineering while experiencing its practical application in the Gas and Oil Refining fields. In 2017, he began pursuing a doctoral degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Connecticut. His current research is focused on developing methods for fault detection and isolation using a Bayesian statistical approach.
