Jorn W. Janneck is a senior lecturer at the computer science department at Lund University. He graduated from the University of Bremen in 1995 and received a PhD from ETH Zurich in 2000. He worked at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML) in Dortmund, was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California at Berkeley in the EECS department, and worked in industrial research from 2003 to 2010, first at Xilinx Research in San Jose, CA, and more recently at the United Technologies Research Center in Berkeley, CA.
He is co-author of the CAL actor language and has been working on tools and methodology focused on making dataflow a practical programming model in a wide range of application areas, including image processing, video coding, networking/packet processing, DSP and wireless baseband processing. He has made major contributions to the standardization of RVC-CAL and dataflow by MPEG and ISO. His research is focused on aspects of programming parallel computing machines, including programming languages, machine models, tools, code generation, profiling, and architecture.
