Hi, I’m professor in Software Engineering at the Høgskulen på Vestlandet (HVL). You can download my short CV here, or visit my static institutional page.

I’m also the study program coordinator (“studieprogramkoordinator”) for our Bachelor program in Information Technology in Bergen, as well as the international exchange-coordinator.

Together with Håkon Gylteryd, I’m one of the two national management committee members of the EuroProofNet EU COST Action CA20111.

I am also a member of Formal Methods Europe (FME).

Research Areas

  • Refactoring
  • Aggregate Programming
  • Runtime Verification
  • Software Engineering


In DBLP, in Cristin (Norwegian research database, includes pre-prints!).


  • Mobile and distributed application development (Android, cross-platform, aggregate)
  • Model-driven software engineering and reliable software systems
  • Programming languages


  • I dabble in home automation with Home Assistant, also from a perspective of software engineering for our IoT lab (BSc and MSc-projects)
  • Some pet-projects are now on Codeberg instead of Github.com, like the scraping-tool to check the trash-pickup schedule in Bergen (BIRscrape).
