Short CV

I got my MSc in Technical Physics & Electronics in 1979 and my PhD in Biomedical Engineering in
1993, both at Linköping University, Sweden. I became a professor in Biomedical Engineering in 1999
at Umeå University and chaired professor in the same subject at Luleå University of Technology
2005-2011. My scientific research interest is focused on biomedical sensors, specifically resonance
and optical sensors, and tactile video. I have supervised eight PhD-students and three licentiates to
completion. I have a long experience of R&D in biomedical engineering in general and have worked
as project manager and been responsible for business development of medical and biomedical research
results contributing to the establishment of new companies. Moreover, I am head of an R&D team in
biomedical engineering and informatics and have contributed to the development of some 200 R&D
projects. I am inventor of 7 granted patents and I have also founded some companies and an
interdisciplinary research centre, where I am still engaged. I was awarded the Erna Ebeling price 2008
for outstanding scientific research in the area of Biomedical engineering. I have published more than
150 scientific publications.
