Background and activities

Magnus Själander is Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Visiting Senior Lecturer at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University. He is the coordinater of the Energy Efficient Computing Systems (EECS) research initiative at NTNU. Själander has an M.Sc. from Luleå University and a Ph.D. from Chalmers University of Technology. Before joining NTNU, Själander worked as a Digital Design Engineer at Aeroflex Gaisler (2008-2009) and as a researcher at NXP Semiconductors (2007), Florida State University (2012-2013) and Uppsala University (2014-2015).

Research

Själander's research focuses on the design of high-performance and energy-efficient systems at all scales. His background lies primarily in computer architecture and circuit design, and he has led implementation projects in both FPGA and ASIC technologies. Recent projects focus increasingly on hardware/software codesign and efficient low-power systems (compiler, architecture, and hardware implementation) for high-efficiency computing. The driving philosophy behind these projects is that by extracting more information from the application and by monitoring the system, we can better control the hardware to use resources more efficiently in terms of performance and power.
