Jörgen HanssonJörgen Hansson, PhD in computer science, Linköping university 1999. He joined Linköping University in 2000 as a faculty member, and was promoted to associate professor (sv. Docent) in 2005 and Professor in 2008.

During the years 2001-2005 he was asked to lead the effort, together with Prof. Erik Sandewall, of establishing and running the federally commissioned national PhD graduate school in computer science (a k a CUGS), with Lund, Mälardalen, Skövde, Växjö, and Örebro as partner universities. During the same years he was chairing the educational board for the engineering curriculum (sv. högskoleingenjör).

In 2005, he joined the Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, USA, as a Senior Member of Technical staff. In his role he was leading the Performance-Critical Systems initiative and co-leading the Architecture-Centric Engineering initiative.

In 2010, he joined Chalmers University of Technology as a Professor in software engineering. In this role he was leading the newly established Software Engineering Division, a joint division between University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology, and responsible for launching the Software Center, an industry-driven consortium and research center. In late 2013, he was recruited to University of Skövde.
