I hold a Professor position at Department of Informatics, University of Oslo (associate professor 1999-2005). My research interests include machine learning, bio-inspired computing, artificial intelligence, adaptive systems, robotics, reconfigurable hardware and applying this to complex real-world applications.

I have got a Dr.Ing (Ph.D) degree in computer engineering from the Norwegian Institute of Technology (1996). I was doing research in the fields of artificial neural networks and parallel processing. As a part of my research I have been a research student at Kyoto University, Japan for one year.

After finishing Ph.D., I began working for NERA Telecommunications. I was involved in designing a digital power line carrier system. Then in April 1998, I was employed by Navia Aviation for designing a satellite-based flight landing system.

I November 1997, I made a research and publication trip to Japan and New Zealand. From January to April 2000, I was a visiting researcher for three months at Evolvable Systems Lab, Electrotechnical laboratory, Tsukuba, Japan.  

August 2010 - July 2011, I was a visiting professor at Cornell Creative Machines Lab.

I was a General Chair for the 22nd International Conference on Field Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL) hosted by University of Oslo, August 29-31, 2012 and the 9th Joint IEEE International Conference of Developmental Learning and Epigenetic Robotics, 19-22 August 2019 in Oslo, Norway.
