The recruitment of Deputy Heads of School at EECS is complete, and the new management team, led by Head of School Ann Lantz, is in place. Here, you can read what they think about their roles and what they will focus on.

Markus Hidell, First Deputy Head of School and Director of First and Second Cycle Education (GA)

"As Deputy Head of School, I will work closely with the Head of School and do my best to contribute to the development of education, research and collaboration with the rest of society. I will combine this new role with my job as GA, which takes up most of my time. Thus, I will continue to focus on education and work to develop it from different perspectives, such as subject content, quality, as well as dimensioning and financial conditions."

"The combination of the role as deputy head of school and the assignment as GA provides good scope for working broadly with the continued development of the educational offer and how it connects to our teachers' work environment. I am very much looking forward to interacting with the new school management regarding faculty renewal, research conditions and the school's change work in general."

Joakim Lilliesköld, Deputy Head of School with a focus on change management

"After many years with central development assignments in digitalisation and future education, it feels fun to return to the school's operations and work with our development. We are KTH's largest school, and we are still growing."

"As Deputy Head of School focusing on change management, I will develop our internal structures and processes. This means that I will support the work when the operations in Kista move to Campus and the reform agenda that the school will develop on behalf of the President. I look forward to working with the school's development to become more efficient and remain relevant and successful."

Lina Bertling Tjernberg, Deputy Head of School with a focus on research conditions and impact

"As deputy head of school at EECS, I will focus on creating the best possible conditions for research at EECS and contribute to KTH's vision  of taking the lead for sustainable societal development. At EECS, we research areas where technology and people are at the centre, revolutionising today's societal development, such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, digitisation, electrification, and fusion. There are remarkable opportunities for research impact in these areas."  

"I will contribute to making our research visible, encourage dialogues and collaboration within our research environments and with external ones, and help us position ourselves in strategic arenas. I want to help us drive national and international development in our strategic research areas and support researchers from research to entrepreneurship. I will also represent EECS in centres and various other committees."

"It is a great trust and honour to take on this role. With my experience leading the KTH Energy platform , several international and national research visits, and involvement in various advisory roles, I look forward to contributing to KTH's success."

Henrik Artman, Deputy Head of School and Responsible for Future Faculty (FFA)

"After a hectic fall and spring in the role of FFA, it feels excellent to dare to look up and confidently start working with Markus Hidell in his role as GA to make a broader and future-oriented inventory of which teachers and researchers we need and can afford. As FFA, I will continue to work to speed up recruitment, but also to ensure that we as a school become better at recruiting and promoting equally."

"After becoming familiar with the recruitment and promotion processes, I will also work to coach our researchers and teachers to a greater extent. There are many challenges, but with such good company as the new school management, I'm sure it will go well. The most exciting thing is that you can never really predict the work."
