Professor Olsson studies language design and implementation for programming concurrent systems. He is one of the key designers and implementors of the SR concurrent programming language. Professor Olsson is currently developing the JR concurrent programming language, an extended Java that includes SR-like synchronization mechanisms. He is also currently examining practical tradeoffs among different concurrent programming models.
