Machine intelligence

I'm interested in the principles of how brains process information, and how we can build more efficient and reliable systems using similar principles. As a physicist by training, I am also curious how brains generate conscious experience and what role it has in mediating intelligent behaviour. You can find further information about that at my official webpage, see the link on the left-hand side of the page.

Historical academic record

I was a creative experimentalist at young age (example). My academic training has focused on theoretical physics and computing, in particular studies involving numerical simulations of statistical physics, quantum field theory at finite temperature and density, and general relativity. I studied engineering physics at the Luleå University of Technology and did a diploma work in the ATLAS collaboration at CERN. The software prototype that I developed during the diploma work is used in the ATLAS detector. I was a Ph.D. student in the Swedish Graduate School of Space Technology and defended my Ph.D. thesis in March 2007 (Supervisor: Prof. Sverker Fredriksson; Co-supervisor: Prof. Johan Hansson; Opponent: Prof. Mark Alford from Washington University in St. Louis; Advisor and main collaborator: Prof. David Blaschke). I was an FNRS postdoctoral fellow in astroparticle physics at the University of Liège and an active member of the ESF-funded CompStar network at that time. I developed the numerical code 3FCS, which is used for calculation of quark-matter equations of state and phase diagrams. The related publications on phase diagrams, neutrino trapping effects and properties of hybrid stars are notable contributions. The papers on hypothetical Preon Stars with Johan Hansson and the papers on potential effects of non-annihilating dark matter in Neutron Stars with Paolo Ciarcelluti are notable contributions as well. If you are familiar with compact stars you need to pay attention when reading our papers on dark matter - there is no such thing as a “universal compact star sequence” in that scenario. In 2010 I started focusing on brain-inspired computing.
