Team leader of Astor J03 (one of my daugthers' football team).

Cycling and cross country skiing (just to keep myself in shape).

List of publications

A complete list of my publications can be found here.


My research intersts include energy efficient embedded systems and heterogeneous multi-processor systems, with a focus on multi-media and digital signal processing applications.

I am currently involved in the following major projects and groups:

Runtime Exploitation of Application Dynamism for Energy-efficient eXascale computing (READEX), a European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation project (grant agreement No 671657).

Towards Ubiquitous Low-power Image Processing Platforms (Tulipp), a European Union Horizon 2020 innovation project (grant agreement No 688403).

European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation

Energy Efficient Computing Systems (EECS), an inter-department Strategic Research Arena at NTNU

Special-interest group on ''Scenario Driven Design for Embedded Systems''

Much of my research is done in cooperation with Professor Francky Catthoor at imec in Leuven, Belgium.
