Sara Dersten, Doctoral student


Sara Dersten is an industrial Ph.D. student at Mälardalen University, Sweden. In 2006 she graduated
as M.Sc. in Computer Science from Mälardalen University. After graduation, she got employed by
the Swedish patent office and in 2008 by Volvo Construction Equipment. In 2009 Sara started her
Ph.D. studies in refactoring of systems architecture and defended her licentiate in 2012. She is now
working in the E/E Systems architecture department at Volvo CE and is involved in the SARPA project.
SARPA aims to investigate and demonstrate the design of a highly flexible platform for vehicle
automation that can be used in both on road and off road products and in a number of different
applications with different environmental constraints. Therefore an electronics architecture that
is flexible and scalable must be defined so it can provide a possibility to meet the needs each new
mission requires. Still the system must remain safe and robust.
