And where did they go?
The graduated PhD students and the postdocs leaving the group have taken some very interesting paths. Most of them are still in research, but a remarkably large fraction of them do this in industry rather than academia, e.g., at IBM Research (Dublin), IBM Advanced Analytics Center (Calgary), Apple (San Jose, CA), Red Hat (Madrid), and five at Ericsson Research (Stockholm, Luleå, Montreal). PhD students going to Academia are now found at Carnegie Mellon University (US), University of Massachusetts Amherst (US), Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), and Umeå University. Also a large group of them just crossed the street to our own spinn-off, Elastisys.
