Senior Team Leader / Health IT Lab

Lisa Wells

I have a PhD degree in computer science from Aarhus University. And I have been involved in pervasive healthcare projects since 2006. I have worked with administrative tasks in Caretech Innovation since I started at the Alexandra Institute in 2009. Before that I had a postdoctoral fellow position at the Dept. of Computer Science at Aarhus University. In 2006-2008, I worked as a project manager on healthcare projects (projects with the Alexandra Institute as partner).

Before turning towards the pervasive healthcare field, my work centred around research and development of tools for modelling and analysing systems. Most of my PhD - and postdoctoral work focused on:

  • modelling and analysis of systems, by using models to examine if systems perform as expected - both in terms of logical correctness and efficiency.
  • simulation-based performance analysis, which uses computer simulations of models to examine various objectives for system performance such as speed, efficiency, throughput, utilization, and resource consumption.
  • the modelling language Colored Petri Nets, which is a graphical modelling language with a strong mathematical foundation and which is well-suited for modelling of realistic systems, ie. not only for mock-ups.
  • development of performance features in CPN Tools, a free tool that supports modelling and analysis of systems using CPNs.
