About me

I studied Engineering Physics (Teknisk Fysik) at KTH, then went on to do a PhD in Computational Neuroscience here at KTH (2009). I then moved to Vrije Unversiteit Amsterdam to work as a post doc (2009-2011) and as a Research Associate at University of Cambridge (2011-2015). Since 2016 I am back at KTH again, this time working on the Human Brain Project. I am interested in neurodevelopment and use computer models to understand the mechanisms underlying how the brain self organises itself. Currently working on "Snudda" a pipe-line that integrates detailed neuronal models into a realistic network where the connectivity between the neurons is based on morphology and experimental data on connection probabilities, and the dynamic properties of the synapses are derived from experimental data.
