I am 51 years old and live since 1999 in Luleå together with my wife and three children. I started my professional career in 1992 with ABB in Ludvika. I came to ABB as a Trainee after graduating with an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Chalmers University of Technology. With ABB I worked both hands on with electronics and software, as well as with project management. In 1999 I was offered a Ph.D. student position at LTU and found it interesting to once again go deeper in technical challenges. My Ph.D. studies led to my graduation in November 2004, and I am presently Associate Professor (Docent) at the Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineerinat Luleå University of Technology.
