Planning for a Licentiate degree

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”

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”

First Abstract

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”

Friday Seminar

Every Friday at our department, someone holds a short presentation about their research. This Friday, it was my turn. I talked about the experiments that I have done, the pipeline we have created from experiment design to data analysis, and what I’m currently doing with the BCI systems’ calibration. I was pleased with the presentation,Continue reading “Friday Seminar”

So much Knowledge

Last week I attended a very inspiring webinar from the BCI society by Dr. Christian Herff. It was about machine learning for BCI systems. When I started my Ph.D. studies in august 2019, I knew nothing about BCI systems and machine learning. Since then, I have taken courses and read a lot about the topics and feel somewhatContinue reading “So much Knowledge”
