Assoc. Prof. Sara Zahedi is one of the two KTH researches who have been elected as Wallenberg Academy Fellows 2019.


Wallenberg Academy Fellows , the career program for young researchers launched by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in 2012, provides long-term funding for young, promising Swedish and foreign researchers from all academic fields. This year twenty-nine new researchers are appointed to the program.

Sara Zahedi will be developing new calculation methods and combining these with deep structured learning in order to create simulation tools that can be used in processes that involve a very large number of dynamic objects. More specifically, Sara Zahedi will use the calculation models to simulate the dynamics in so-called microbubbles, which transport drugs in the human body.
