I am currently working at Visiana ApS as director of development / CTO. In my current work and spare time, the focus is the development of solutions to real problems in society. This includes healthcare, infrastructure environment etc – pretty much anything unrelated to marketing and economics. Within my fields of interest I am drawn to challenges that others find difficult or impossible. To be able to overcome the obstacles, my academic career was focused on cross-disciplinary projects within natural sciences.
I have a PhD degree in the field of biomedical engineering and an MSc degree in computer science. Throughout the PhD, work focused on understanding signals from the body and using these to quantify states of patients. I was therefore involved in many projects related to body signals and sensors such as ECG, EEG, EOG, ICP, body positioning and movement, medical image analysis as well user interfaces for some of these. The MSc degree included classical software engineering courses with the exception that all my elective points and projects revolved around machine learning and digital signal processing (text, audio, weather data, brain activity and images)
My spare time is mostly spent on family, but I still occasionally spend hours on supervising university students and developing apps/models/solutions for short term projects. Basically anything where effort can potentially make a long lasting impact for someone else.
