Angeliki Pantazi received Diploma and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Technology from the University of Patras, Greece, in 1996 and 2005, respectively. She joined IBM Research – Zurich, Switzerland in 2002 as a Ph.D. student and became a Research Staff Member in 2006.
Her research interests include scanning-probe techniques with emphasis on high-speed nanopositioning, control technologies for magnetic tape drive systems, emerging memory concepts such as phase-change memory, and neuromorphic technologies. She has published more than 80 refereed articles and holds over 40 granted and pending patents.
Dr. Pantazi was named IBM Master Inventor in 2014 and became a senior member of the IEEE in 2015. She was a co-recipient of the 2009 IEEE Control Systems Technology Award for contributions to nanopositioning for MEMS-based storage and other applications, the 2009 IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology Outstanding Paper Award, the 2011 IBM Pat Goldberg Memorial Best Paper Award and the 2014 International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) Industrial Achievement Award for the application of advanced control technologies in the nano-domain to magnetic tape data storage.
