Before returning to Lund University, I worked in industry for well over a decade, as a software engineer, applied researcher, and course instructor. I've developed software for mobile phones, real-time operating systems, safety-critical control systems, and web browsers. I have worked with Ericsson Research, ABB Automation, Enea Realtime, and Bombardier Transportation.

I have a licentiate degree in computer science (Lund), as well as master's degrees in computer science & engineering (Lund,, history (Lund, fil.mag), and history of science & ideas (Umeå, fil.master).

Research interests (when time permits)

I'm interested in the history of science and technology, including perspectives offered by cultural history. I'm particularly fascinated by visions of the future, as expressed in, say, Swedish 1970s and 1980s debates on computers in society.
