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”

We bought a house!
In September, the corona restrictions were slightly lifted, and we decided to go for a spontaneous house viewing. The house was nice, more or less what we were looking for, but it needed some love in the form of renovations. Despite the need for renovation, we decided to place a bid, and to our bigContinue reading “We bought a house!”
Teacher of the year – again!
Today I had the honor of receiving the prize for best teaching assistant of the year from the M-guild at LTH. I’m so proud and delighted about this prize. This semester, we taught in the classroom (instead of online as during Covid). I had seminars that were similar to webinars, as I have written about before.Continue reading “Teacher of the year – again!”
DIY – Discgolfväska – Discgolf bag
I have made a bag for my discgolf discs. It has one big compartment for cloths and water bottle and an outer compartment for the discs. It can be carried as a backpack or a sholder bag. This post is in swedish because I know all sewing words in swedish. But if you want theContinue reading “DIY – Discgolfväska – Discgolf bag”
Mathematics for Machine Learning
Few books that I read give me the feeling that they are written for me, but the book Mathematics for Machine Learning does. The book’s authors start from the basics and present advanced mathematical concepts in an understandable way. If you ever want to get “under the hood” of machine learning, I suggest you start here.
Summer BCI project
So far during the summer, a colleague (Martin Gemborn Nilsson) and I have been working on setting up a real-time BCI system. We had our struggles, but in the end, we managed. We used Timeflux and Psychopy. The BCI system detects the user’s workload (“how hard is the user thinking”). To calibrate, the user does an n-back experiment where theContinue reading “Summer BCI project”
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!”
Reflections on Webinars
It is always hard to know what good teaching is. I learned some tools for analyzing teaching in the course Teaching for Higher Education that I took. One assignment was to reflect upon our teaching, and I wrote about my webinars (see attached document below). One of the course teachers, Torgny Roxå, asked if heContinue reading “Reflections on Webinars”
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”
What a Week!
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!”
