My PhD will be on Mathematical modelling on the brain. The main goal is to investigate neurological diseases, such as dementia and alzheimer, to better understand their causes and progression. I will be using tools such as machine learning and in my work.
I have a master's degree in theoretical physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). I wrote my thesis on quantum plasma dynamics where I worked with both quantum field theory and fluid and electrodynamics. After my masters I worked in IT, doing work in both automation and infrastructure.
