So who is Anna?

To learn to know Anna we have a short interview with here:

What is your academic background?

I completed my degree of Master of Sciende in Industrial Design Engineering at Mid Sweden University, Sundsvall in January 2009.

What is your industrial experience, and what is your role at Sandvik?
After completed studies I accepted a position as a product developer at Sandvik Coromant in Sandviken. Prior to this I have working experience from SSAB Oxelösund AB, in production, and from Volvo Powertrain AB in Gothenburg.

Why have you chosen to start the path towards a PhD?
I enjoyed the academic environment but wished to work in the manufacturing industry. When the possibility to become a graduate student at Sandvik, within an interesting area that also was universal, I felt that it would suit me perfectly. I cannot think of a better situation than having the possibility to perform further education during working hours!

Which three words do you think best describes you as a person?
I am usually told that I laugh a lot, so cheerful is an appropriate word! Other suitable words for describing me are curious and target-oriented.

What do you like doing in your spare time?
When I get the chance I like to exercise, spend time outdoors, prepare tasting meals to enjoy in good company or maybe read a good book.
