I have mostly taken courses and done teaching during my Ph.D. so far. But this semester, I have focused on research. The idea is to use so-called multi-armed bandits to improve Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI). Multi-armed bandits The challenge in a multi-armed bandit problem is to choose an action that gives you the highest reward. ForContinue reading “Writing a paper”
A common thing to do at the department of Automatic control, where I work, is to write a Licentiate thesis halfway through the Ph.D. The Licentiate degree is an academic degree used as a “declaration of future research in the Ph.D.“. I plan to present in about a year, but the planning starts now. ItContinue reading “Planning for a Licentiate degree”
Some colleagues and I take the course Matrix Theory this semester. I will learn a lot, but it will take some hard work. Though I’m still not sure I can trust the book yet, it calls me a liar….
The abstract that I submitted to my first conference has been accepted! What that means is that I will have a poster at the virtual BCI meeting next week. I have never been to a conference before, and I’m nervous. But I have done all preparations: prepared a pitch video and made the poster, so I thinkContinue reading “vBCI 2021”
At LTH, there is a tradition among the student guilds to honor the year’s best teacher and teaching assistant. First, the students nominate teachers and teaching assistants they like, and then the student council selects the best teacher and teaching assistant based on some criteria. This year it was me. Out of all the teachingContinue reading “Pedagogical Prize!”
A new course that I teach started a few weeks ago. I will hold webinars like I have done before. I know that students appreciate them, but it is always a bit nervous the first time. I did not have to worry, though. The students came to the webinar and said that it was great! It makes meContinue reading “New round of teaching”
During the last two weeks, I have taken an introductory course in Teaching in Higher Education, and it has been so inspiring! The course has taught me a new way of viewing teaching and, most importantly, given me tools to reflect upon and analyze my teaching strategies. I have already put my new knowledge into practiceContinue reading “Teaching in Higher Education”
Big news! I have submitted my first abstract for a poster session! Woohoo! It is a one-page abstract where I describe my work with calibration for Brain-Computer Interfaces. The idea is to create a system that automatically decides when to do calibration and when to use the system. It is brilliant! If the abstract isContinue reading “First Abstract”
Are you interested in doing a Master’s thesis project with me? You can find suggestions from my colleagues and me in the document below.
This week has, without a doubt, been one of my most productive weeks in a long time! I started the week with a lot of research, and the days just flew by. I plan to submit my work to a poster session in the BCI society later this year. I’m currently studying a setup for calibratingContinue reading “What a Week!”
