We are delighted to bring you the result of the 2021 Supervisor of the Year Award! As you probably already know, this is an award that the PhD Chapter of THS launched for the first time in the academic year 2020, in order to highlight exemplary supervision practices in Third Cycle Education at KTH. This year, we had the second edition of this award.
Overall, we received 55 nominations. An independent jury of PhD students, in which all five schools were represented, finished two rounds of evaluating the nominations.
The winner of the 2021 edition of the Supervisor of the year award, is… Rafael Eduardo Guedez Mata!
Rafael Eduardo Guedez Mata works in the division of heat and power technology and has exemplified tremendous commitment as a supervisor of his doctoral students.
He was awarded a diploma and a trophy that had his name inscribed beside the name of the previous winner. This trophy will be passed on from one winner to the next.
Given the large pool of incredible candidates, it was, without doubt, a difficult task to select just one winner. We would like to stress our gratitude for the outstanding dedication of all nominees for their doctoral students, and, not less importantly, for the students that nominated their supervisors! They are all winners.
Thank you for staying tuned and helping us improve doctoral education!
