Until November 2002, I was a post-doc at Department of Computer Science (DIKU), University of Copenhagen, working on on-line program transformation, programming-language semantics, and algorithms. My PhD supervisors were Neil D. Jones and Morten Heine Sørensen, and we were all members of the TOPPS group.

I am now developing medical micro simulators at Laerdal (formerly Sophus Medical).

Selected downloadable papers

Driving-based Program Transformation in Theory and Practice ([B5, ps.gz]) is the title of my Ph.D. thesis, which is an in-depth treatment of many of the ideas presented in the papers below.

From Type Inference to Configuration (© Springer-Verlag [pdf]) presents an analysis of the interactive product-line configuration (a set of products and features with constraints on which subsets are available), as seen in the internet shops. We show how interactive configuration can be approached, both from a type-inference and a binary-decision-diagram angle.
With Morten Heine Sørensen. Appears in the Book The Essence of Computation: Complexity, Analysis, Transformation. Essays Dedicated to Neil D. Jones.

From Checking to Inference via Driving and Dag Grammars (© ACM [ps.gz] ) describes an automatic method for program inversion of lazy, first-order functional programs.
With Morten Heine Sørensen. Presented at Workshop on Partial Evaluation and Semantics-based Program Manipulation, Portland, Oregon, 2002.

Driving in the Jungle (© Springer-Verlag [ps.gz]) presents (the beginning of) a unified framework for on-line program-transformation methods for first-order functional programs. In this framework, deforestation, supercompilation and tupling differ only in how terms are represented.
Presented at Second Symposium on Programs as Data Objects (PADO-II), Aarhus, Denmark, May 2001. Appears in volume 2053 of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, pp. 198-217.

Common-subexpression elimination of Conditional Expressions [ps.gz]
With Oege de Moor.

On Perfect Supercompilation (© Springer-Verlag [ps.gz] [dvi.gz]) describes an automatic method for handling negative information in a supercompiler.
With Morten Heine Sørensen. Presented at Perspectives of System Informatics, Novosibirsk, Russia, July 1999. Appears in volume 1755 of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, pp. 113-127. A detailed technical report on 98 pages exists ([ps.gz] [dvi.gz]) .

Optimal On-line Decremental Connectivity in Trees (© Elsevier Science [ps.gz])
With Stephen Alstrup and Maz Spork. Appears in Information Processing Letters, vol. 64, nr. 4, 1997, pp. 161-164. A detailed technical report on 26 pages exists ([ps.gz]). An extended abstract (© ACM [ps.gz] with Mikkel Thorup) describing empirical results appeared in ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms, January 2000.
