As Associate Professor at Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen (DIKU), I conduct research within the areas of theoretical aspects of and implementation of programming languages and systems. I serve as manager for the HIPERFIT Research Center, a center that focuses on high-performance functional computing techniques for financial information technology. Before joining DIKU, I spent four years in industry developing software, using functional programming techniques, for specifying and managing financial contracts. Before my time in industry, I was Associate Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen. My research interests include compilation techniques for functional languages, in particular with focus on module systems, Web technology, program analyses for memory management, and program optimisation. I am a co-developer of a number of systems and tools. For more information, see
