Dr. Per Runeson is a professor in software engineering at the Department of Computer Science, Lund University, Sweden, and is the academic leader of the Software Engineering Research Group since 2001, and now a visiting professor at NCSU. He received a PhD from Lund University in 1998 under supervision of Prof. Claes Wohlin, and an MSc in Computer Science and Engineering from the same university in 1991. He has five years of industrial experience as a consulting expert in software engineering at Q-Labs, Sweden.
Prof. Runeson's research interests concern methods and processes for software development, with a certain interest for software testing. The research is directed towards development and evaluation of efficient and effective methods to facilitate and measure software quality. The research has a strong empirical focus, involving surveys, case studies and experiment conducted in close cooperation with industry partners.
Prof. Runeson has published more than 100 refereed papers in international journals, conferences and workshops, bringing a 4th rank worldwide in JSS ranking of systems and software engineering research scholars, based on publication records 2003-2007. He is the coauthor of a book on experimentation in software engineering and continues to contribute to the methodological development of the field.
