Already during his undergraduate studies in Pakistan, Tallat Mahmood Shafaat got a special interest for distributed systems. He went to Sweden and KTH for the master programme in Software Engineering of Distributed Systems. His interest grew and he decided that he wanted to continue with research within distributed algorithms and systems. Now he has defended his thesis "Partition Tolerance and Data Consistency in Structured Overlay Networks".
Magnus Hårdensson Berntsen earned his Master of Science in Engineering from the Microelectronics programme at School of Information- and Communication Technology in 2007. But he wanted more of KTH so after just one year in the industry he returned for doctoral studies. Now he has defended his PhD thesis "Consequences of a Non-Trivial Band-Structure Topology in Solids".
Jian Chen from China came to School of Information and Communication Technology for PhD studies after master studies at Fudan university in Shanghai. Now he has defended his PhD thesis "Low Noise Oscillator in ADPLL toward Direct-to-RF All-digital PolarTransmitter" and is excited to make his research useful in the industry.
Zhi Zhang from China became a joint PhD student between KTH and Zhejiang University in 2007. During his PhD studies he has built hierarchical networked RFID systems for the Internet of Things (IoT) and has also started a company within this area of which he is the CEO. Now he has defended his PhD thesis and can call himself a doctor.
Nima Dokoohaki from Iran came to School of Information- and Communication Technology for master studies in software engineering of distributed systems. He continued with PhD studies and now he has defended his PhD thesis Trust-based user profiling.
Geng Yang came to School of Information and Communication Technology in 2006 for PhD studies. Here he has developed an ultra-low power bio-sensing and conditioning microchip, which can detect various bio-signals from a human body. And now he has graduated as a PhD in Electronic and Computer Systems.
Imran Mahmood took his Master at School of Information- and Communication Technology. After that he got a position as PhD student in Electronic and Computer Systems. Now he has defended his PhD thesis 'A Verification Framework for Component Based Modeling and Simulation "Putting the pieces together"'
