Education and work

This page gives some brief information about my education and my current work. For more information please check my Curriculum vitae


I have two degrees from Lund Institute of Technology(LTH). First I took a diploma in electrical engineering at LTH in Malmö, then I took a master of science in the same field at LTH in Lund. I specialised in the fields of programming and control theory/automation. I have experience of the following programming languages:

  • C
  • Pascal
  • Java
  • Modula-2
  • Simula
  • Smalltalk
  • Visual Basic
  • A few assembler languages

I have much experience in the field of real time programming, as well as embedded programming and software development. Vehicle dynamics, control theory and simulation are also part of my education and everyday work, with Matlab/Simulink/Real Time Workshop as a major tool.

For further information see my my Curriculum Vitae.


Since 970801 I am employed by Haldex Traction in Landskrona. I work as a control software developer with a very interesting product, the Haldex Limited Slip Coupling. This is an intelligent coupling for distributing the torque between axles in an all wheel driven vehicle.It has some revolutionary new properties, the most evident being the intelligent way of dynamically controlling how much force goes to the front axle and how much goes to the rear axle. It communicates with other parts of the vehicle using the CAN bus.

new The Haldex AWD system is used in the new all wheel drive SAAB 9-3 XWD and Turbo X, with a high performance combination of intelligent controllable couplings between front and rear axle as well as as a diff brake between the wheels on the rear axle! That ensures great performance for both traction and handling. See the Haldex XWD site here!

The Haldex AWD system is also used in the new VW Tiguan, the 1001 bhp Bugatti Veyron, Land Rover Freelander 2 (LR2), Volvo S60 AWD, S60R, V70 AWD, XC70 and  V70R, XC90, Volkswagen Golf 4motion and the Quattro version of Audi TT, Audi A3 and Audi S3, as well as on VW Bora, Skoda Octavia 4x4 and Seat Leon!!!

I develop some of the control algorithms affecting the car handling performance, and am responsible for tuning the coupling in one platform of a major car manufacturer.

My work requires me to travel a lot. In the winter test season, a lot of time is spent in northern Sweden, in the towns of Arjeplog, Jokkmokk or Arvidsjaur.
