Meet Torben Larsen – new Professor in the DKW group

Please welcome Professor Torben Larsen who has joined the Department of Computer Science as of November 1, 2022.

We are happy to announce that Professor Torben Larsen has joined the Department of Computer Science as of November 1, 2022. Torben will be a member of the DKW group.

Describe your research area and work experience:

- I have been involved in various leadership tasks over approximately the last 15 years. I started as head of the joint (ENG+TECH) doctoral school which with 500-600 enrolled PhD students was a huge school. I have since those days been associate dean in various positions - latest as associate dean of digitalisation. Unfortunately, I only had about one year in this latter position before a restructuring took place.

- Turning back the clock 15 years I was working at the Department of Electronic Systems. I worked mainly in signal processing and implementing code to the algorithms we derived. Python was the main platform but optimised where this made a difference. There are still parts of scientific computing and others where I may use some of my experiences.

- Further, I hope that some of my recent work in creating high performance computing and quantum computing can assist in solving problems of extreme proportions. Also, there is an interest in forming a Danish quantum computer software center.

What are you looking forward to as being part of CS?

- I am really looking forward to joining and collaborating with the most impressive department I know of. The Department of Computer Science has a huge talent mass and excellent senior researchers. On top of that I have been received in the most fantastic way I could dare to dream about.
