I am a senior researcher at Blekinge Institute of Technology and Ericsson AB. My research interests are in agile and lean software development, software testing, software process improvement, software security, and software measurement.
The ongoing empirical research is done with my industrial partner (e.g., in form of case studies) as well as in the lab (e.g., by doing controlled experiments). Furthermore, we used research methods from evidence based medicine which have been transfered to software engineering (for example systematic reviews and systematic maps) to establish the state of the art in different fields of software engineering.
In my spare time, I like pole walking (when the weather in Sweden allows to do so) and reading English literature. Furthermore, I enjoy listening to music (among my favorites are Queen, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Beautiful South) and watching U.S. television series (very good ones are for example True Detective, Shield, Oz, Bates Motel, The Wire, and The West Wing).
