Background: Research work in the area of design optimization (PDE constrained optimization), where computer based methods are developed for the rational optimization of structures and devices. A recent example project is PLATO-N, which is a FP6 European collaboration, which includes Airbus and EADS as partners. Here specialized algorithms are developed for the optimization of composite structures for aeronautics applications. I have also worked with curriculum development and didactics, including the use of computer tools in the mathematics training at all levels of education.

1974 - 1979 M.Sc. (cand.scient.) (mathematics/physics) - University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Academic grades




Research activities in PDE-constrained optimization, in particular topology optimization of structures and materials. Has a broad international experience from collaboration in research and graduate education. Has been involved in many curriculum development activities at all university levels, with a special emphasis on the role of computer-based tools in teaching and education.
