Background and activities


I am involved in teaching the following courses:

I also supervise project and master thesis topics within computer architecture and design. Current project and master thesis topics are available at IDIs web pages. I often co-supervise projects and masters with local and national industry partners such as ARM, Nordic Semiconductor and Silicon Labs (formerly Energy Micro).

The topics and reports of my supervised master theses can be found on NTNU Open.


My main research area is memory systems for Chip Multiprocessors (CMPs). CMPs are often referred to as multi-core architectures. In addition, I am interested in heterogeneous computer systems, energy efficiency, computer architecture simulation, compilers and system software.

I am currently involved in the following research projects:

I am also the group leader of the Computing research group at IDI.

I currently supervise/mentor the following PhD students and post docs:

I have supervised/metored the following PhD students and post docs:

  • Mentor for Dr. Mohammed Sourori (2015-2017), first employer Accenture
  • Co-supervisor for Dr. Odd Rune Strømmen Lykkebø (2012-2017), first employer Nnaisense
  • Mentor for Post doc. Dr. Juan Manuel Cebrian (2012-2014), first employer UPC/BSC
  • Mentor for Post doc. Dr. Nikita Nikitin (2013-2014), first employer Mentor Graphics
  • Informal co-supervisor for Dr. Alexandru Ciprian Iordan (2008-2017), first employer ARM
