KSL Kim Skak Larsen
Professor, Ph.D.

I am a professor of Computer Science in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (IMADA) at the University of Southern Denmark.

Since receiving my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Aarhus University in 1993, I have held longer visiting professor positions at the University of Toronto, the University of Wisconsin, Madison, the University of California, Irvine, and the University of Waterloo.

My primary research interest are online algorithms, data structures, database systems, and algorithmics in general.

I have had the pleasure of working together with about 40 great colleagues and Ph.D. students of 15 different nationalities, resulting in more than 40 journal publications, and a similar number of conference contributions.

Almost all my guests, research visits, and conference participations during my career have been supported by FNU, as is the current project, Algorithmic Challenges, of which I am the PI. I also participate in the On-Line Algorithms and Advice grant from the Villum Foundation, from which we should hire a postdoc soon.

Over the years, I have accepted quite a few appointments of a more service-oriented nature, such as head of department for 3½ years, and, currently, head of the national External Examiners in Computer Science.
