Marcus Jägemar, Associated Senior Lecturer

Marcus Jägemar is currently working as a capacity and performance expert at Ericsson with a part-time assignment as a senior lecturer at Mälardalen University. Marcus is currently supervising two Ph.D. students and participate in several research initiatives.

Marcus studied Computer Engineering at the Mid Sweden University, Sundsvall, Sweden, and at the University of Greenwich, London, UK. He received his M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Mid Sweden Univerity in 2000. He has since then mainly been working in various roles within Ericsson, both as a consultant and later as a regular employee. Marcus received his Lic. degree in 2016 and his Ph.D. in 2018. within the Mälardalen University DPAC project.

His primary academic interest is to improve the performance of large-scale telecommunication systems through efficient shared hardware resource management.

Marcus' main research interest is how low-level hardware capacity correlates to high-level system performance for both embedded and cloud-based systems.

Embedded systems may have limited hardware capacity due to power/cost/space limitations. How can define and implement the best possible hardware for a given software system? How will cache sizes and cache architectures affect the system performance is a vital question for large-scale systems.

Cloud-based systems have, typically, higher-spec hardware than embedded systems. Nevertheless, it is still important to keep power consumption to a minimum for the given system performance. How can we correctly dimension the cloud-system to meet the system-level requirements?
