PHD PORTRAITS: ANDREAS MØGELMOSE – SOFTWARE DEVELOPER

After my PhD I knew that I wanted to try to work in the corporate world. I actually felt that I owed myself to try to work in the corporate world, to better be able to determine whether I wanted to pursue a career in academia or the industry.

 

HOW CLOSE IS YOUR CURRENT CAREER TO THE IDEAS AND DREAMS YOU HAD AS A PHD FELLOW?
It is pretty close to what I imagined. I didn’t choose to do a PhD because I wanted to enhance my chances on the job market or because I wanted to get a big salary, but mostly because I found the topic and the research interesting.

 

HOW HAVE YOU MADE USE OF YOUR PHD EDUCATION, AND WHICH OF YOUR PHD COMPETENCES HAVE BEEN MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU?

I would say two things;
The topic I focused on during my PhD I use in my work today. That is also the reason that I chose to work at Inropa; here I am able to work with computer vision, which is a rare possibility at companies here in Northern Jutland.

The second thing is my ability to manage and handle projects. During my PhD and postdoc I did lots of self-contained projects in collaboration with other companies and organizations. This is the same as what I do at Inropa today.
