Research presentation

Magnus Hjelmblom

PhD in Computer and Systems Sciences. Senior Lecturer, Decision, Risk and Policy Analysis group.

Research subject: Decision, Risk and Policy Analysis

Magnus Hjelmblom is a senior lecturer in Computer Science but is part of the Decision, Risk and Policy Analysis (DRP) group. His research interests mainly revolve around norm regulation of agent systems, a topic that lies in the boundary between DRP and Computer Science. In his dissertation, Norm-Regulation of Agent Systems: Instrumentalizing an algebraic approach to agent system norms, Magnus Hjelmblom has developed a general programming framework for normative systems. Another of his areas of interest is analysis and development of decision support systems.


I am part of the research group in Decision, Risk and Policy Analysis (DRP) at the University of Gävle. I am among other things interested in norm-regulation of agent systems, an area which borders both DRP and Computer Science. Another area of interest is decision support systems.
