About me

MBA candidate at Imperial College London, with strong delivery experience and currently living in Stockohlm.

Application of innovation and creating value are keen interests of mine, having been a Chief Innovation Officer recently trying to spark innovation in a global account.

Technically, I have a PhD in safety related software and am an author of 2 best selling books on a Google Technology (Google Web Toolkit)

Outside work, you can find me up in the Swedish mountains on skis with a pulka or hiking in summer

PhD, Use of Synchronous Concurrent Algorithms in Development of Safety Related Systems
1994 - 2004
Imagine a way to reduce the costs of developing High integrity software - the software that is in flight control/medical/nuclear/defence systems. Typically several different mathematical models are used to describe various parts of requirements, design, and implementations of key critical aspects. They are costly to use and risk issues being introduced when going from one model to another. My insight was that Synchronous Concurrent Algorithms (SCAs) can be used to mathematically describe and prove both high level algorithms (design) and hardware implementations (FPGA and generic hardware). My contribution was to extend the standard notation of SCAs and introduce a meta-algebra that can mathematically (and automatically) translate an algorithm described as an SCA into hardware implementation described as another SCA (put very loosely: an algebraically correct method of compilation).
