My name is Martin and I work as a software developer at IST. I hold a Swedish licentiate degree in computer science from Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden. My studies were conducted at the CeLeKT (Center for Learning and Knowledge Technologies) research centre, which focuses on the development of mobile, wireless and web 2.0 applications to support collaborative learning and the design of interactive learning environments to support collaborative discovery learning about complex domains. My research field was on application integration, or more in detail, the ability to promote semantic interoperability of digital content metadata in the domain of Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL). During my years as a researcher I authored or co-authored many peer-reviewed scientific publications as well as a licentiate thesis.
There is a life besides research, and one of my main hobbies since many years back is playing the guitar. Most of my time with the guitar is spent with my band Still I Wither, which have existed in one form or another for over ten years. In 2008, Still I Wither was elected as the 12th best band of all time in the region of Småland, Sweden.
