Papakonstantinou Despina
Mineral Resources Engineer, MSc
I have a strong educational background in mining and geotechnical engineering. I did my bachelor studies in the department of Mineral Resources Engineering, a five-year program, at the Technical University of Crete. Following that, I have obtained a masters degree in design and construction of underground works at the National Technical University of Athens. During my studies I have been involved in a project concerning an underground hazardous waste repository construction, in the area of an old mine. I have worked on mathematical tools for the analysis of geotechnical problems. Presently I am working as an engineer in the mineral exploration and extraction domain as well as in the domain of renewable energy.
Nevertheless I have been searching for a professional position which will utilize and challenge my knowledge and qualifications. I have a good experience in project management acquired through my studies and work, since it involves supervising and decision making. I am also familiar with EU and international legislation. I am very persistent and enthusiastic about my work. With my educational background and my training in geotechnical engineering, I believe could make a valuable contribution in resolving geotechnical problems. I speak fluent English and French and I have good knowledge of Spanish language.
My current location is Alexandroupolis northern Greece, but I would like to work abroad. I have a good ability to adapt multicultural environments, gained through living and traveling abroad.
