Welcome to my personal website. I am a Professor of Informatics at the
University of Skövde, Sweden, working in the Interaction Lab at the School of Informatics. Over the past 37 years I have held positions in several information technology sectors: as a software engineer in industry, as a university professor in Ireland and the UAE, as a consultant,
and as a project officer in the European Commission and Science Foundation Ireland. I serve on the Advisory Board of Innopolis University, Russia's first university dedicated to information technology.
DREAM is a great example of a new breed of robotics - cognitive robotics - and I have the privilege of serving as one of the co-chairs of the new IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Technical Committee on Cognitive Robotics.
As part of SPARC - The Partnership for Robotics in Europe - and euRobotics aisbl, I am also a working on the EU-funded ROCKeu2 coordination and support action to promote the deployment of cognitive systems in industry.
Teaching is an important part of what I do and you will find the notes for most of the courses I've taught over the past 36 years in my Courses page. Here are some of the most current.
