Soujanya Mantravadi

Doctoral Researcher (visitor)

Soujanya is a PhD Fellow in industrial engineering and information systems and collaborates externally with the Center for International Manufacturing for her PhD research. She is currently employed at Aalborg University Denmark, funded by the MADE DIGITAL and MADE FAST programmes, working primarily with case companies LEGO and Danfoss.


Soujanya received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from JNTU Hyderabad, India, in 2011 and an M.S. degree from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, in 2015. She completed her master’s thesis while interning for Alstom in Paris. Before the PhD, she has worked as a research analyst with Mordor Intelligence, a trainee at the Paul Scherrer Institute (ETH Domain), and an engineer with Amada.
