Annika Stensson Trigell, Professor in Vehicle Dynamics at the Department of Aeronautical and Vehicle Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden, was born in 1965.
She graduated from Luleå University of Technology with an MSc in Mechanical Engineering 1988, and a PhD in Computer Aided Design 1994. In May 2000, she moved to Stockholm and to Professorship in Vehicle Dynamics.

Professor Stensson Trigell works as the Director of CVER that is coordinating the strategic collaboration between Scania and KTH. She has been the Director and one of the initiators for both the VINNOVA Excellence Center ECO2 Vehicle Design and the KTH Transport Platform.
She was also responsible for the Green Vehicle National University Programme. She has been very active in defining future transport research & innovation strategies, for the KTH Transport Platform, for governmental agencies and for ERTRAC — the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council. Professor Stensson Trigell is also an academic board member in the newly initiated Swedish Forum for Transport Innovation.

The scientific contributions of Professor Stensson Trigell consider modeling, analysis and experimental evaluation of vehicle behavior, and its dynamic interaction with driver and environment. Besides more than 60 international scientific publications, she co-chaired IAVSD´09 and is member of the editorial board of International Journal of Vehicle Design and International Journal of Vehicle Systems Modeling and Testing.
Through the years, Professor Stensson Trigell has played a key role in supplying Swedish industry with highly qualified engineers and researchers in the field of vehicle dynamics and vehicle system technology.

The prize was handed out by the Håkan Frisinger Foundation at a prize ceremony that took place at Chalmers Hus on March 15, 2012.
