Mariana Dalarsson (MSc 2010, PhD 2016, Docent 2019) is a researcher and teacher in Electromagnetic Theory at the Division of Electromagnetic Engineering (EME) at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (EECS). She received the Honorary Grant ("Honnörsstipendiet") given to the best graduate of the year of her programme, in 2011. She is also the (shared) second youngest woman ever to get a PhD degree from KTH.
Mariana's research interests include electromagnetic scattering and absorption, inverse problems, electromagnetics of stratified media, double-negative metamaterials, mathematical physics, etc. She is the author of about 50 peer-reviewed publications, including 20 journal papers. Currently, she is mainly doing research within her own project grant "Waveguide theory for artificial materials and plasmonics" awarded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).
Last but not least, Mariana is a teacher in the courses EI2405 (Classical Electrodynamics) and EI2440 (Electrotechnical Design). In 2015, she was awarded the "Teaching Assistant of the Year" pedagogical prize from the Engineering Physics students.
