In radio systems engineering, radio resource management (RRM) schemes aim at maximizing the multi-user capacity (the system spectral efficiency in bit/s/Hz/transmitter site) while retaining reliability. The focus of my research has been on one such class of schemes, called transmitter macro-diversity, where several base station transmitters form a choir that send the same signal simultaneously. My suggestion is to form such groups of cooperating transmitters dynamically, and combine this with packet scheduling and other dynamic RRM schemes.

I coined the following concepts, that also have been studied by others in several research papers:
* Dynamic single frequency networks (DSFN)
* Packet and resource plan scheduling (PARPS)
* Fairly shared spectral efficiency (FSSE)

Today similar principles are the foundation of the following standards:
* LTE and 5GNR cooperative multipoint (COMP)
* LTE and 5GNR Multicast-broadcast single-frequency networks (MBSFN)

Other conceivable applications of DSFN that I have studied:
* datacasting in multi-hop adhoc sensor networks (MANET)
* interactive multicasting in DVB-T2


* Project based product development (inter-disciplinary innovation courses in collaboration with the industry, following the SIMS concept, see )
* Introduction to project based product development
* Datamining
* Mathematical modelling
* Numerical methods and Matlab
* Mathematical statistics and modelling
* Thesis projects for the Network Management and the Computer Engineering programs
* Computer networking
* Multimedia and communication systems
* Industrial data communications
* Network technology part I and II
* Information risk and security
