Jakob Axelsson, Professor

Jakob Axelsson received an M.Sc. from LinkÖping University in 1993, and a Ph.D. in 1997 for a thesis on hardware/software codesign of real-time systems. He has been working at ABB Corporate Research and ABB Power Generation (now Alstom) in Baden, Switzerland, Volvo Technological Development (now Volvo Technology), Carlstedt Research & Technology, and Volvo Car Corporation, all in Göteborg, Sweden. He is currently with the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS) in Stockholm, where he is director of software and systems engineering research. He is also professor in software and systems engineering at Mälardalen University in Västerås.

Jakob's current research is focussed on systems-of-systems engineering, and he sometimes blogs about this topic at www.societies-of-systems.com.

Jakob Axelssons research is mainly in the area of complex technical systems, with focus on methods and tools to handle the early phases of product development. In particular, embedded systems and automotive applications are studied, but other products are also of interest.
