In this episode of the podcast Meet Sandvik you will get to know Dilip Chandrasekaran, Head of R&D at Sandvik´s division Kanthal. Born in India, moved to Sweden as a young boy and with an early interest in materials technology, he was well familiar with Sandvik already a long time ago.
“As a material scientist – Sandvik is a company you want to work for. I actually applied more than 25 years ago but didn´t succeed then, so I had to take the long way,” he explains.
