... my bookshelf..
In my previous life at SICS I did research on simulation techniques - my current research interests include real time and fault tolerant systems. Among our projects was developing the simulation platform Simics, which became the basis for Virtutech, the first SICS spin-off. I originally joined SICS in 1991.
In the days of yore when I had more time, I was for a while a columnist for Datateknik, and some of my earlier columns are on-line here. I was also staff representative on the SICS board, and did the occasional talk on technology trends etc (see below).
I studied computer science (MSc) at the Royal Institute of Technology and business administration (MBA) at the Stockholm School of Economics. In my spare time, I hope to complete a PhD in Computer Science any decade now; my advisor is Per Stenström.
By the way, this page was first put up in April, 1994. Here are the early access stats.
General interests: Travel, bridge, musicals, human history, philosophy (especially history of), high-tech entrepeneurship, computer history, operating systems, algorithm design and implementation, man-machine interface, internet, world wide web. I enjoy scuba diving, rock climbing, downhill skiing, tennis, and squash, but I'm not good at any of them, and after developing RSI I've had to quite most.
Research focus: Simulation, emulation, binary translation. Here is a list of some publications.
