After 15 years in industry I moved to academia. My research is about opening up connected embedded systems as a precursor to the “Internet of Things”, and how this enables open innovation also in the domain of embedded systems. My main interest are the consequences this have for the technical architecture and how this in turns affect concerned stakeholders, for example those manufacturing the systems, the end-users and 3rd-party developers. R&D for this must be based on sustainable business models for all concerned and result in optimal product quality for the end-users.

My strength is a holistic view, where I see system design, software architecture, development methods, business models, organisation and management as integral parts in a successful project. This is the result of my years in industry and the possibilities I have had in fast application and validation of my research. I have led or participated in a number of industrial advanced engineering projects developing future embedded electronics, mainly for cars, many of the projects requiring international cooperation with for example Volvo, Ford, Jaguar and Land Rover.
