I am a professor of software engineering at the Department of Software Engineering at BTH, which I joined in fall 2010. Before that, I was a professor of computer science at Umeå University, Sweden.
My PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) is from Aachen University of Technology (RWTH), Germany, where I graduated with a thesis in Programming-in-the-Large (Languages, Tools, and Reuse) in 1993.
I am a member of SERL-Sweden, the Software Engineering Research Lab at BTH. My main research interests are in requirements engineering, object-oriented methods, software process improvement, software product lines, software measurement, software comprehension and computer science education.
I am a member of the editorial board of Informatica Didactica. Furthermore, I am a co-founder of the Scandinavian Pedagogy of Programming Network (SPoP) and a senior member of the Swedish Requirements Engineering Network (SiREN).
Together with Thomas B Hilburn, I am guest editing a special issue of the ACM Journal Transactions on Computing Education on Team Projects in Computing Education (deadline for abstracts is April 1st, 2014). The first of 2 special issues will be published at the end of 2015.
Please do not send enquiries regarding open PhD positions. All open positions, including the PhD positions, will be published at BTH's vacancies page (you might need to scroll all the way down a particular announcement to find a version in English).
We are currently hiring teachers in webbprogramming, please see BTH's vacancies page for details. Later this year (i.e. 2015), we will announce several research and teaching positions in software engineering. Please keep an eye on BTH's vacancies page for new openings.
