Final presentation jury members

We have four members in the jury for the final presentation. Since we have little time for each group, there might not be time for all members of the jury to express their opinions about each group's presentation. In fact, my guess is that perhaps two members or a maximum three members of the jury will be able to comment each group's presentation (they will have to take turns throughout the afternoon). I also strongly suspect that the comments might for the most part be feedback and opinions/reviews rather than open-ended or "deep" questions (there is unfortunately not enough time for that).

The members of the jury are:
- Milad Hossainzadeh
- Airi Lampinen
- Mario Romero
- Daniel Wentz


Milad Hossainzadeh is a young architect and entrepreneur who was born in Iran. He grew up in Sweden and partly in London where he received his Masters from UCL The Bartlett School of Architecture. He is currently based in Stockholm, working at the leading Scandinavian architectural firm White. He shares his time as a member of Urban Land Institute and working strategically with international relations within the field s architecture, urban design, business development and start-ups. As an architect, he has an interest in optimizing the power of cultural innovation and systematic root thinking.

Airi Lampinen works as a postdoctoral researcher at Mobile Life Centre, Stockholm University. Previously, she has been a researcher at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT, a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley's School of Information and a research intern at Microsoft Research New England. Her research is focused on interpersonal boundary regulation in networked settings, such as the sharing economy and social network services. Her qualifications include a PhD in social psychology from University of Helsinki and a BSc (Eng.) from Aalto University's interdisciplinary Information Networks degree programme.

Dr. Mario Romero is Associate Professor in Human-Computer Interaction in the Department of High-Performance Computing and Visualization (HPCViz) at KTH. He is a Fulbright Scholar from Ecuador and a graduate of Georgia Tech (PhD Computer Science, 2009), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Master Computer Science, 2001), and Universidad San Francisco de Quito (B.S. Industrial Engineering and B.S. Construction Engineering, 1996). Dr. Romero is also a technical co-founder of BrailleTech, developer and distributor of BrailleTouch. Dr. Romero's research centers in Human-Computer Interaction, Visualization, and Ubiquitous and Accessible Computing.

Daniel Wentz is Vice president for Strategy & Digital Transformation at Schibsted Media Group. He studied at KTH during the vintage years of 1998 - 2003, at the time when KTH Graphic Arts (Grafisk Teknik) was trying to understand what the Internet was and how it could be useful. After having finished his studies at KTH, Daniel ventured into entrepreneurship and Management Consulting (focusing on European Telecom and Media sectors) before joining Schibsted Media Group in 2011.
