This week has, without a doubt, been one of my most productive weeks in a long time!
I got some wall decorations to put in my home office, which turned out to be a better improvement than I expected. I highly recommend you to do something similar!
The teaching for this semester has soon reached its end. As I have said before, I love teaching. I have gotten a lot of positive feedback for my webinars and for the labs I have supervised. Teaching has genuinely been one of the few glimpses of light in these dark Corona times. But more teaching willContinue reading “Preparations for more teaching”
A few weeks ago, I was chosen as a Ph.D. student representative for the department board. I have had similar positions before, so I’m familiar with most tasks, but one thing that is new to me is to participate in interviews for new Ph.D. student candidates.

The course is based on the book, and during the course, I have evolved from knowing very little about Machine learning to feeling quite confident about it.

Today, the course’s headteacher and I got an email from a student stating how much they appreciated us as teachers.Continue reading “I Love Teaching!”

A tool I still use is to plan my upcoming week in detail. Each Friday, I sit down and look at my calendarContinue reading “Time planning”
