Jakob Eriksson

Associate Professor Jakob Eriksson

I grew up in Sweden, got my M.Sc. in CS at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Wasted a few years on dot-coms, before graduating with a Ph.D. from U.C. Riverside in '06. I then spent a two-year postdoc at MIT. I've been a faculty member of the UIC Department of Computer Science since 2009, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2015.

My wife Prof. Devroye is in the ECE department. We live in the near-west suburb of Oak Park together with our two children Matilda and Oskar.

Research Interests

My research interests lie primarily in computer systems, including operating systems, networks and mobile sensing. In operating systems, I work on deterministic execution, high-performance messaging systems, and alternative uses for simultaneous multi-threading. In the mobile and networked systems area, some of my work includes vehicular WiFi connectivity, and mobile sensing for traffic monitoring and road condition assessment. You can read more about my research projects on my research lab's web.
