I am a professor in Radio Communications at KTH – The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. I am co-founder and long-time director of Wireless@KTH, the Center for Wireless Systems at KTH. Now I serve as the Scientific Director of that center. I belong to the Radio Communication Systems lab which I led since 1989. The lab is now part of the the department of Communication Systems. From January 1st 2018, I am Head of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at KTH.
Besides my activities at KTH, I also hold several other positions and tasks I am involved in:
- Senior research advisor (adj Forskningschef) at FOI, the Swedish National Defense Institute

Since 2001 I am a member of the Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) ,
In 2014 I was appointed Honorary Doctor at Alto University, Finland
My research interest are focused on the future of Wireless Systems – Infrastructures and Services. Managing the “Data Tsunami” with respect to technologies, infrastructure economics as well as spectrum and energy management I see as one of our greatest challenges ahead. I frequently give talks on future developments and research challenges in these area.
