The third Research Platform TEDxKTH event took place on May 2nd, 2012 at Bromma Airport. A lot has changed since the golden days of Science fiction, and yet nothing much has changed at all. What ever happened to all the futuristic visions of transportation; all the things Flash Gordon and Captain Kirk promised us would be here by now?
Pakistan-born Saroosh Shabbir came to KTH with a background in theoretical physics, but her PhD work has pulled her into experimentation around the strange behaviour of light and particles in the sub-atomic quantum world. “I like being able to go beyond analysis and produce evidence to prove the theories,” she says.
