Description:

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Electrical Engineering

We are seeking 1-2 doctoral students with a strong background and interest in Mathematics, Optimization, Machine Larning, and Networks, as well as in Experimental and Systems Research. The following research directions will be investigated:

In networked systems, the challenge of effective data representation is becoming crucial. The number of data types and sources that are available can be very large and range from several dozens to billions. How to identify and produce data representations of lower dimensionality from which efficient and accurate prediction models can be made is largely an open question.
The decision-making process in networked systems can be modelled as three subprocesses: 1) estimation of the system state, 2) learning/inference to forecast performance, and 3) control actions to change the system state. These subprocesses are traditionally designed separately. The challenge is to understand how to jointly optimize them.
A successful candidate will perform formal analysis as well as experimental validation of concepts in the context of networked systems.

What we offer

The possibility to study in a dynamic international research environment in close cooperation with industries and advanced universities the world over.
Life-long network through KTH's Alumni organization.
A personal study plan to support your development within your areas of interest.
