Meet our teachers

Education and research are closely linked at Stockholm University. As a student, you will have direct contact with leading researchers in your field and access to the most recent scientific findings. Our researchers are also our teachers, meet a few of them here.

  • Mats Wiklund ‘The job prospects after graduation are really good’ ‘I am fascinated by research and the possibility of spreading knowledge through open systems’, says Mats Wiklund. Stockholm University was among the first in computer sciences and a Stockholm University professor, Börje Langefors, even invented the Swedish word for computer, ‘dator’.
