Some personal stuff

Over me

I was born Lund, Sweden, and grew up in the south of Sweden. I studied at the University (Mathematics) and the Institute of Technology (Electrical Engineering) in Lund and got my masters degree ("Civilingeniörsexamen") in Electrical Engineering in 1982. The year 1983-1984 I spent as a student at Harvard University, while I, as cross registering student, also took courses at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1986 I got my Ph.D. ("Teknisk Doktor", "Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering") from the Department of Automatic Control (PhD advisor: Prof. K. J. Åström, co-supervised by Prof. Christopher I. Byrnes, who I met during my Harvard period) also in Lund. (Photo taken after the doctoral promotion, 1986.) In 1987, I spent 5 months as postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Waterloo, with Prof. M. Vidyasagar.

In 1987 I moved to Bremen, Germany, to work with the Institute for Dynamical Systems at the University of Bremen. 1998 I moved to Munich, where I am presently living. I have been working for/with, among others, science + computing, BMW, and Askon Consulting. Presently, I work as a free-lancing engineering consultant, with this home site.
