I blogged earlier about starting to write my Licentiate thesis. Well, time has passed, and I’m still writing. The plan is to split it into one part with an in-depth introduction to BCI systems and one part about my research. I aim to have a draft of the first part until summer. It is occasionally hard toContinue reading “Writing Licentiate thesis”

Writing a paper
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”
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”
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”
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.
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!”
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”
