PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student (licentiate) in multimodal data-driven urban mobility management

The population in the Stockholm region is estimated to be 3.4 million in 2050, a growth of 50% to today’s 2.4 million. The rapid population growth will result in higher traffic congestion and crowding in public transport. Large travel demand is already responsible for noise, pollution, crowding, and stress for travelers and people living in urban areas. Traditional traffic and mobility management already play an important part; however, it often has a reactive character. It needs to be transitioned more to pro-active data-driven multimodal traffic management to unveil its full potential and benefits for society and better management of existing resources.

In this project, you will have the opportunity to explore multimodal mobility patterns in the Stockholm region using various data sources such as GPS, highway microwave sensors, toll portals, e-scooters, mobile phones, and public transport smart card data. You will use data-driven analytics, choice modeling, machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and simulation to unveil the understanding of typical multimodal travel patterns and their relationships during various events, traffic incidents, and public transport disruptions. All this will lead to a multimodal predictive framework essential for pro-active scenario-based multimodal traffic management.

(10) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student (licentiate) in DMDU for Transport Planning

Transportation is facing a period of significant changes and uncertainties driven by a variety of factors (technologies, mobility norms, climate changes, energy crises). The conventional approach to transportation planning relies on a ‘most likely’ forecast with limited sensitivity analysis. It has inherent limitations when it comes to addressing significant uncertainties associated with evolving developments.

The Decision Making Under Deep Uncertainties (DMDU) project aims to shift the paradigm from a traditional ‘predict-then-act’ model, which optimizes based on a single ‘best-guess’ future (forecast), to a model that stress-tests plans to minimize regrets across a spectrum of potential scenarios (foresight). It will develop the DMDU tool with AI/machine learning data analytics that supports the development of a socio-economically efficient transport system, particularly in a long-distance planning context in Sweden.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Electricity market optimization

European states (and Sweden) are working toward a sustainable intermittent renewable future. This green vision has brought about several important challenges. One of the major challenges is the increasing complexity in the Day-Ahead Electricity Market (DAM) model. First, the Market Time Unit (MTU) is planned to be reduced from 1 hour to 15 minutes. This roughly means an optimization model four times larger than what we have now. Second, the type and number of nonconvex orders are expected to increase by growing share of intermittent renewable generation. This in turn creates increasing complexity in calculating uniform prices. Third, Joint optimization of energy and balancing reserves in the day-ahead market which requires innovate algorithms to solve the DAM model.

In this project we propose to study these three issues and to develop policies to address these concerns, with the ultimate aim of improving the performance of the DAM model and smoothing the transition to the 100% renewable future.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Molecular simulation of wetting

The energetics and dynamics of wetting are of high interest from both fundamental scientific and technological points of view. Often the macroscopic behavior of wetting is dominated by processes at molecular scale at the interface. Here in particular the three-phase contact line is of importance, where substrate, liquid and gas (or another liquid) meet. The scales involved can not be observed directly in experiments. Atomistic molecular dynamics simulations can provide the required spatial and time resolutions. In this project will study how mixtures of two liquids or a liquid plus surfactant wet surfaces. The surfaces can be simple or have molecules attached to them that react to the liquid. In experiments non-trivial behavior has been observed. There can be several reasons for this, e.g. preferential wetting of the substrate by one of the liquids (energetics), but also differences in dynamic behavior of liquids at the contact line. Molecular dynamics simulations enable us to disentangle such effects and will allow to rationalize behavior observed in experiments. As a further step, we might be able to capture certain types of behavior as boundary conditions or extensions of continuum models, which are being developed together with collaborators at the department of Mechanics.

This position as a PhD student is within a collaborative environment that is shared with the department of Mechanics, where there is development of continuum methods as well as experiments. The environment is multi-disciplinary, international and includes the main developers of the popular GROMACS molecular simulation package, which will be used in this project.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in fuel cells

The project will contribute to new and more efficient fuel cells and fuel cell systems for the transport sector. Vehicles powered by fuel cells convert hydrogen completely emission-free except for the water produced. With more efficient fuel cells, emission-free operation is enabled even for vehicles and areas of use where battery operation is not a suitable technical solution, e.g., for heavy-duty vehicles.

In the project, proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) with an operating temperature of up to 120 °C will be studied. This, for the fuel cell, higher than normal temperature has clear advantages, such as the possibility of more efficient cooling, higher catalyst activity and less sensitivity to impurities in the constituent gases. However, development of new cell components and the system is required, and the rate of aging and degradation mechanisms also increases with higher temperature. The project is a national collaboration between research groups at four different universities (KTH, Lund University, Chalmers, and Linköping University), as well as several other parties (Scania, AB Volvo, Alleima, Cell Impact, PowerCell, Intertek, Hydrogen Sweden).

The PhD student will be employed at the division of applied electrochemistry at KTH, with about 30 PhD students and seniors doing research on batteries, fuel cells and electrolytic processes in an international and creative environment. The work will be mainly experimental and includes electrochemical characterization of small fuel cells to study function and lifetime under different conditions. Read more about the department here.
