Since 2002 acting as technical project manager for the McStas project which is currently applied in simulation of neutron scattering instruments for the ESS in Lund, Sweden. McStas is  world leading in simulation of instrumentation for neutron scattering and virtual neutron scattering experiments. Participating instituttes are DTU, ESS, NBI, ILL and PSI. McStas is extensively used in the design of future instruments for the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, and I am part-time seconded to the ESS Data Management and Software Center (DMSC). I am also technical lead of the McXtrace project which is an X-ray equivalent of McStas. Current contributing partners are DTU and Synchrotron SOLEIL .  My position is affiliated with the NEXMAP section within DTU Physics. I am also the local representative of Danish Association of Masters and PhDs among DTU Physics employees.
