Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap
I am the leader of the research group Production & Automation Engineering which consists of 40+ researchers working within the area of virtual engineering. The group’s research is to a large extent applied and carried out in close cooperation with industrial partners, mainly within the manufacturing industry. The research covers various areas such as simulation, optimization, robotics, decision-support systems and AR/VR.
My own research is focused on solving complex real-world optimization problems through soft computing approaches, and on the development of IT-tools for supporting executing optimized solutions in practice. The problems my research is targeting are usually related to production or logistics and found within both the private and the public sector. I am leading several research projects and supervise several PhD students.
