Machine Learning, Data Centres, Privacy Preservation

Machine Learning researcher at RISE ICE Data Center in Luleå with focus on Autonomous Data Centres - that is, to develop machine learning algortihms that let an AI run the operations of a Data Centre with minimal need for human intervention. Lately I have had the opportunity to further explore applications of AI operating under strong privacy protection, for example in the domains of cyberphysical systems and digital health. 

Previously I worked with quantitative analysis and model development at a large international bank in London and Tokyo.

Fall 2018 I joined LTU EISLAB as industrial PhD student under supervision of Professor Fredrik Sandin. As a step on the way I passed the degree of Licentiate in September 2020.
