Sonja Buchegger

Associate Professor of Computer Science at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Sonja Buchegger is an associate professor of Computer Science at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, at the School of Computer Science and Communication (CSC), in the Theoretical Computer Science department (TCS). She also serves as the vice director of the ACCESS Linnaeus Centre. Prior to KTH, she was a senior research scientist at Deutsche Telekom Laboratories, Berlin, Germany, and a post-doctoral scholar at the University of California at Berkeley, School of Information.

“My research interests are in computer networks (self-organizing, mobile ad-hoc, peer-to-peer, social, sensor, delay-tolerant/opportunistic) and questions related to economics, security and privacy. These days I’m mostly working on privacy-preserving decentralized systems such as social networks.”

My Ph.D. is in Communication Systems from EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, and I got a graduate degree in Computer Science and undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and in Business Administration from the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. I was a research and teaching assistant at EPFL and I worked at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory in the Network Technologies Group.
