We say welcome Leila, new postdoc!
Leila has been working as a postdoc on SCS since April 17.
Who is Leila Bahri?
A wanderer through life’s wonders. A person who insists on believing in humanity regardless of all what’s happening around. I love travelling and experiencing new things with locals. I love nature and to do hikes in the woods. Have I forgotten to say that I come from Morocco?
What will you be working with at KTH?
I will be working as a postdoc, dealing with things related to users privacy in the social web. My research aims at exploring new technologies to make people in fathomable control of their data, and of their digital lives.
Where have you been working previously?
I received my Bachelor from a Moroccan University and was then selected for a one year research scholarship in Japan. After that I went back to Morocco and had a master degree from Al Akhawayn University. I then worked at the same university as an IT engineer for about 3 years, after which I moved to Italy for PhD studies at the University of Insubria (funded by the Marie-Curie ITN project iSocial). I also worked for a short time in Turkey as an assistant researcher.
What skill would you like to master?
Carpentering or wood carving, to be able to speak seven languages fluently (it used to be only six but now I add Swedish to the list) and to dance salsa like a pro!
What are some small things that make your day better?
Receiving a smile from a random passerby in the street, pure dark chocolate and smelling good coffee being prepared.
What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
Then I would talk about cooking, or perhaps a talk on my country’s history and things to do there as a visitor.
