Mikael Sjödin, Professor, Research Leader


NOTE: During 2008 Mikael changed his family name from Nolin to Sjödin.

At Mälardalen Real-Time Research Centre, Mikael is focusing his research on new methods to construct software for embedded control systems in the vehicular and telecom industry.

The current research goal is to find methods that will make software development cheaper, faster and yield software with higher quality. Concurrently, Mikael is also been pursuing research in analysis of real-time systems, where the goal is to find theoretical models for real-time systems that will allow their timing behavior and memory consumption to be calculated. Mikael received his PhD in computer systems 2000 from Uppsala University (Sweden). Since then he has been working in both academia and in industry with embedded systems, real-time systems, and embedded communications. Previous affiliations include Newline Information, Melody Interactive Solutions and CC Systems. In 2006 he joined the MRTC faculty as a full professor with specialty in real-time systems and vehicular software-systems.
