Who we are:


Helle Rootzen

Professor in learning technology and digitalization at DTU Compute and director of Center for Digital Learning Technology

Her research in and development of new learning technologies has changed the way mathematics are taught at DTU and at other universities. She has had a long engagement in digitalization of industry, in education/learning, and in exponential technology and she is alumnus from Singularity University. She has a statistical background and an extensive experience in working as a statistician with industry and with researchers from many different fields of sciences and engineering. From 2010-15 she was Head of Department at DTU Compute. In this period she led a value-adding merger between DTU Informatics and DTU Mathematics into the new DTU Compute with almost 400 employees. She has overseen the successful move of parts of the department into a new, modern building, which has set new standards for innovative learning environments and office spaces. During her time as director DTU Compute has multiplied the number of external research grants, has made substantial contributions to innovation, and has impacted the political scene. She has been leader for many research- and teaching projects and was elected as teacher of the year at DTU in 2000.

He has since 2001 taught the introductory DTU mathematics course Mathematics 1 for undergraduate students. In 2007 he took over the coordination of the course, and has since been the project manager for the ongoing development projects, which have made the course known for its use of e-learning and blended learning. Karsten is educated in Danish literature and mathematics from the Copenhagen University, and started his career in teaching and research in Danish literature at university level. Before he was employed at DTU, he coordinated study programs in Danish language and mathematics for refugees to be prepared for university studies. Karsten lectures and does research in mathematics-didactic topics regarding use of e-learning and IT. He is appointed Danish national representative of ICMI, the International Commission for Mathematics Education.
