Visakan Kadirkamanathan

Director, Rolls Royce University Technology Centre in Control & Systems Engineering

As one of Sheffield’s first ambassadors, Visakan joined after a colleague encouraged him to use the free support available. He admires the programme’s ability to make the university, and the particular activities they do as a centre of excellence, even more visible to his peers. Beyond the hands-on help, he enjoys meeting the people who provide catering, accommodation and venues in Sheffield, so he always has the up-to-date information he needs. He successfully hosted an international conference in 2018 and hopes to do more soon.
