Peter’s primary interest is in investigating model-based techniques for system engineering. His research philosophy involves tackling practical problems that are relevant and important to the current issues in model-based systems research and propose foundational solutions to them for good impact. Currently, his research is focused on modeling techniques, modeling language development and model-driven engineering with direct applications to diagnostics and automated program and model verification.
Peter has a vast experience in conducting research activities with the ability to bring research ideas into production and development. He enjoys acting as liaison between sales, marketing, and technology groups to support product positioning and customer demand as part of new product development. Prior to joining PARC, Peter has been involved in several start-up high technology ventures as a co-founder and has been actively involved in building their businesses.
Peter also holds an Associate Professor position in Computer Science at Linköping University Sweden where he is teaching Computer Science and Software Engineering courses at graduate and undergraduate level and performs research in the area of model-driven engineering.
Peter has received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Linköping University Sweden in 2004. Peter has published over 35 peer-reviewed articles and papers in leading journals and conferences in the field of modeling and simulation and program analysis and verification. Peter has also served as co-chair or program committee members of more than 15 conferences in his area of research and he is actively involved in the modeling and simulation community.
In his free time, Peter enjoys spending time outdoors and fishing for salmon and pike in the icy waters of Sweden. He is hoping that one day, in one of his regularly fishing expedition to the Caribbean, he will catch the legendary Blue Marlin that have been seen around the paradise island of Curaçao.
