Börje F. Karlsson

Principal Research Eng Lead


I am a Principal Research Eng Lead in the Data, Knowledge, and Intelligence (DKI) research group at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA).

I’ve joined MSRA in 2012 as part of the Mobile and Sensing Systems and System Algorithms research groups. I’m now a member of the Knowledge Computing group – part of DKI. My main research interests are knowledge pipelines/analytics, mobile and context-aware systems, intelligent agents, and digital entertainment, but my work also covers aspects of software engineering and testing.

Before joining Microsoft Research I was a Research Scientist at Nokia Institute of Technology (INdT), a Nokia-founded R&D lab in Brazil, where I lead its Contextual Platform group. Previously I’ve also worked as system/software architect, consultant, product owner, and development team lead on projects for companies such as Nokia, C.E.S.A.R., Motorola, 3, TIM, Radix.com, Petrobras, among others.

I received my doctorate in Computer Science from PUC-Rio, Brazil in 2010 and my BSc from UFPE, Brazil.
