Robert Lagerström

Associate Professor in Information systems architecture at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Membership period 2016–2021

I am an associate professor in industrial information systems architecture at KTH and visiting scholar at Harvard Business School. I hold a Master of Science degree in Software Engineering and a PhD in Electrical Engineering. I did an industrial postdoc at ABB Corporate Research and was a researcher at Harvard before I became an associate professor. My research focuses on complex systems architectures and management of such when it comes to modifiability and cyber security. The research is sponsored by among others KIC InnoEnergy, ÅForsk, Swedish Grid, and Vinnova. My methods are tested in industrial collaborations with e.g. Ericsson and ABB.

I am also involved in a start-up, foreseeti AB, a spin-off from our research. foreseeti AB develops and sells a product called securiCAD, a CAD tool for analysis and simulation of cyber security in complex systems architectures. foreseeti was given a spot on NyTekniks 33-list in 2016.

Once a month, I write chronicles for CIO Sweden. Where I treat everything from the core of my research, so that industry becomes more aware of what we do, to the fact that we need more women in IT.
