I am an associate professor / senior lecturer at Lund
University specializing in Programming Tools in the Software Development and Environments group at
the Department of Computer Science.
I completed my Ph.D. in 2013 at Lund University under the supervision of Görel Hedin (Thesis:
Contributions to the Construction of Extensible Semantic Editors).
As of March 2018, I have returned to Lund University after four years in
industry, working on developer tools at Google in Mountain View and Copenhagen
(Tricorder, Shipshape, Tricium).

Research Interest: I'm interested in programming languages, software
development, and development tools. Specifically, the composition of languages
and tools, and how these are used. I’m curious about overall questions in the
realm of 'how do we construct useful languages and tools for software
developers?' and 'how do we make software developers more productive?'.
Supervision and Openings: I supervise projects on all levels (from B.Sc.
to Postdoc) and occationally I have openings for Ph.D. students, postdocs, and
student programmers. I'm always interested in working with motivated students.
Please reach out if you have an interest in this area and we can discuss
possibilities. I try to list current openings here.
