I am a Professor in Software Engineering at the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Institute at University of Southern Denmark, Vice-Head of Research for the two units SDU Software Engineering and Centre for Industrial Software and Head of the SDU Educations in Software. Beyond SDU I am active in Digital Research Centre Denmark (DIREC) and the Danish Data Science Academy.

In my research I focus on the areas of software engineering and data-science. In my work I have studies the application of data-science methods for ubiquitous computing and cyber-physical systems. I have contributed with new methods for positioning, energy and occupancy modeling and data analytics and enable the optimization of software qualities including performance, usability, integration, energy efficiency and privacy protection. This has among others led to important contributions for data science methods on positioning data within robotics, logistics and activity recognition. His research has been published at premier venues such as ACM MobiSys, ACM Ubicomp, ACM TOSN and RAL. The results have enabled open-source projects and industrial strength research prototypes that have been commercialized.

I am always looking out for new collaboration partners and talent to join our team so please get in touch to discuss opportunities.
