PhD projects

I'm currently supervising the following PhD candidates:

MSc projects

Current MSc projects

  • Adrian Storm-Johannessen and Sondre Fossen-Romsaas (2018—2020). Generative adversarial networks and medical image synthesis.
  • Sivert Stavland (2018—2020). Topic: Machine learning and electronic health records.
  • Sindre Eik de Lange and Stian Heilund (2017—2019). Autonomous mobile therapeutic robot. Using advanced computer vision techniques (graph convolutional neural networks), and the Robot Operating System, the project aims at developing a robotic physical therapist for patient rehabilitation. Sindre wrote a short article on Medium about some of their work here: A Beginner’s Tale of A First Computer Vision Project.
  • Sathiesh Kumar Kaliyugarasan (2017—2019). Transfer learning in medical imaging. A study of how to best use transfer learning when training deep neural networks for biomedical image analysis. His work so far was presented at NVIDIA's GTC Europe in Münich, October 2018.
  • Feel free to contact me if you're interested in doing a MSc project in machine learning.

    BSc projects

    Feel free to contact me if you're interested in doing a BSc project, preferably in machine learning.

    Current courses

    I'm also involved in Health Care Informatics, a Continuing Education course at the University of Bergen. Topic: Artificial intelligence for natural language processing and speech recognition.

    In addition to lecturing in these courses I'm creating supporting e-learning material: MAT106x, BMED360x, ELMED219x, NordBiomed, financed by the Erasmus+ KA2 strategic partnerships MedIm and HVL. To deliver these and other courses I've set up the e-learning platform AkademiX.

    Past courses

    From 2011 to 2013 I gave the following courses at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, mainly to students in engineering programs:

    I have been a substitute lecturer in MAT212 – Functions of several variables at the University of Bergen in 2010, and in Les algèbres de Hopf combinatoires en théorie quantique des champs perturbative, Université de Strasbourg, 2009
