Lars M. Kristensen received the PhD in computer science from
University of Aarhus, and is currently professor in computer
science and software engineering at Western Norway University of
Applied Sciences. Upon the completion of his PhD, he worked as a
post-doctoral researcher in computer systems engineering at
University of South Australia and the Australian Defence Science
and Technology Organisation concentrating on software tools for
military planning and on development of real-time avionics mission
systems. Following the post-doctoral research position, he
obtained a permanent position at University of Aarhus and was
involved in a number of industry supported research projects
within modelling and validation of Internet protocols, mobile
ad-hoc networks, and sensor networks. He has published more than
70 papers in strictly referred journal and conferences, is member
of the Editorial Board of the TopNoC Springer journal, and is a
member of the steering committee for the International Petri Nets
conference. He is co-author of the most recent textbook on
Coloured Petri Net and CPN Tools which is one of the most widely
used software tools for modelling and validation of concurrent
systems. In 2007 he received the Danish Research Councils' Young
Researcher's Award and in 2012 he was awarded the Research and
Development Award of Bergen University College.
Current and Recent Research and Development Activities
My research interests are in the areas of concurrent and
distributed software systems engineering, model-driven software
engineering, software verification, explicit state space methods
and model checking, computer tools for validation and
verification, ad hoc networking and sensor networks for
industrial automation, modeling and reliability of process and
control systems, cloud computing and internet-of-things.
