Niels Christian Juul is Associate Professor in Computer Science at Roskilde University since 2000. From 2016 a member of the research group User-Driven IT Innovation at the Department of People and Technology (IMT). Between 2006 and 2016 a member of the research group User-Driven IT Innovation at the Department of Communication, Business, and Information Technologies (CBIT). Between 2002 and 2006 Head of the the Computer Science Section, Head of the Department VII - Communication, Journalism and Computer Science and Acting Head of Department of CBIT.

Between 1995 and 2000 Associate Professor in applied computer science at Copenhagen Business School, Department of Informatics. Previously PostDoc at Department of Computer Science, University of California, Riverside, USA and PhD student, Assistant Professor, and Amanuensis at DIKU, Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen, working in the DistLab group at DIKU.


Current research focussing on IT Security including identity, biometrics, and privacy. Acceptance of technological innovation including the relations between technical, organizational, and human aspects are studied in the context of designing, building and maintaining innovative and secure IT systems.

Research background in distributed systems, in particular the underlying technology: distributed operating systems. Focus has been on both design, implementation, performance, and paradigms for process communication, concurrency, distribution, consistency, replication, object-orientation, and fault-tolerance. Especially within management of memory from memory allocation to garbage collection and distributed shared memory.

Related areas of research include: computer architectures, networks, Internet, operating systems, mobile computing, security, and programming languages.

Further research in the application of above technology to electronic commerce and eGovernment, especially within the area of standards, security, architecture, mobility and back-end integration. Also policy issues and IT-politics are studied including the regulation and dissemination of new technology, e.g., the Internet, EDI, WAP, PET, Biometric-ID, and electronic commerce.

An updated CV as of November 2018 is available here as 13 A4-pages in PostScript or PDF and in shorter version as 5 A4-pages in PostScript or PDF.


Selected publications with preferences to newer publications, including references to on-line publications.

Larger publication list including duplicated publications, in PDF format or PostScript (7 pages).
