At GPower, we welcome Simon Sejer Pedersen who has become part of our development team from today. Despite his young age and academic degree from Aarhus University, Simon has already been on stage at NIWeek in Austin, Texas, where we met him first time.
Simon is a newly graduated with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Aarhus University. As a part of his studies, Simon has a specialization in business understanding and has, among other things, worked with design, testing, and analysis of new methodologies for vacuum drying and vibrations in wind turbine towers. Furthermore, Simon has i.e., worked with test and measurement equipment setup, quality assurance, and data analysis which is consistent with GPower’s core competences.
In addition to study experience, Simon also has experience with test and measurement systems from his internship at Siemens Gamesa. Here, he has worked with thermodynamic and mechanical systems among others. In previous projects, Simon has, moreover, dealt with everything from initial design of test set-up and preparation of software to data analysis and collection before, during, and after a project.
Reunion Joy from NIWeek 2019
However, it is not the first time we have encountered Simon. We met him i.e., at NIWeek 2019 in Austin where he and a group of fellow students presented an autonomous robot for Arctic use. A project – and a presentation – resulting in a 2nd place, while they won the audience award at the same event. In addition, the project also won the SDG Sustainary’s Best Research Category at the SDG Tech Awards 2019.
“I wanted to be part of GPower because it’s exciting working with test and measurement technologies. I see GPower as a smaller specialist team focusing on knowledge sharing and interdisciplinarity. This means, among other things, that I can become wiser based on internal knowhow and many years of LabVIEW and TestStand experience. Furthermore, it suits me well being part of a company with exciting customers and different projects to satisfy a wide range of personal interests. I look forward to getting started on projects contributing to automation, increased quality, and greater benefit of test results for our stakeholders” – Simon Sejer Pedersen.
