Erik Elmroth is Professor in Computing Science. His extensive leadership experience includes being Head eand Deputy Head of the Department of Computing Scienc for thirteen years and being the Deputy Director for a national supercomputer center (HPC2N) for another thirteen years.

He has established Umeå University's research on distributed systems, focusing on theory, algorithms, and systems for the autonomous management of ICT resources, spanning from individual servers to large scale cloud datacenters, federated clouds, highly distributed edge clouds, and software-defined infrastructures. Elmroth is currently member of the Executive Committee and four other management groups of the 5.5 billion SEK Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) and coordinates the Umeå University activities in the program. He is also member of the program management group and one of the original principal investigators for the eSSENCE Strategic Research Program, up to now being funded by 330 million SEK. Other current research leadership highlights includes being the principal investigator for three projects funded by the Kempe foundations, in total funding 24 postdoc reearchers in AI, autonomous systems, and distributed systems. Elmroth's team frequently participates in large-scale national and international the EU FP7 and H2020 projects RESERVOIR, OPTIMIS, VISION Cloud, CACTOS, ORBIT, RECAP, and ACTiCLOUD, the EU networks ACROSS and AAPELE. A particular past highlight was being the principal investigator for Cloud Control, which was the second largest project ever funded by the Swedish Research Council, taking a control theoretic approach to fundamental problems for autonomous cloud datacenter management systems.

The current research extends on Elmroth's broad background in scientific and high-performance computing and extensive experience from organizing supercomputing infrastructures. As part of his research, he has supervised over 30 completed and ongoing PhD students, including over 20 as the main advisor.

Elmroth is member of the Swedish Royal Academy for Engineering Sciences and Vice Chair for its Division on Information Technology. Previously, he was the Chair of the Board of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC). He has also been Chair of the Swedish Research Council's (VR's) expert group on e-science infrastructures and member of VR's Council for Research Infrastructures (RFI). He has been appointed by the Nordic Council of Ministers for developing a Nordic eScience strategy and as a follow-up, a Nordic-Baltic eScience strategy as well as by SNIC for producing a national HPC strategy. He has held a three-year position as national HPC lecturer appointed by the Swedish Council for High Performance Computers (HPDR).

He has received the SIAM Linear Algebra Prize 2000, for the most outstanding linear algebra publication (world-wide, in any journal) during the preceding 3-year period. He has also received the Nordea Scientific Award 2011.

International experiences include a year at NERSC, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, and one semester at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA.

He is founder and chair of the Control Workshops series (www.cloudresearch.org/workshops).

As part of exploiting his research, Elmroth has co-founded Elastisys AB, an expert on security and regulatory compliance in the Cloud Native ecosystem.
