About me

I graduated with a Master's of Science in Biotechnology in 2019 from LTH. The same year, I started as a Ph.D. student at the Department of Automatic Control.

It is a bit unusual to go from Biotechnology to Automatic Control, but this makes me a true Multidisciplinary researcher. I love the challenge it brings to have a different background than the
rest of the group and how different our views are.

I'm part of the research group working with EEG-based Brain-Computer Interfaces led by Prof. Bo Bernhardsson. My thesis aims to optimize the next generation of Brain-Computer Interfaces using cloud computing. The work I have done has focused on setting up a pipeline from EEG-experiments to interpreting the signals with machine learning methods. I has also tested some existing protocols for real-time reading of EEG-signals.







  • Automatic control, basic course for CMN (exercises and lab sessions)


The Corona pandemic forced us to have online teaching this year. I started webinars, which is a new way of teaching at the department. During a webinar, the students discuss the material from a lecture in an organized way with each other and me.

  • Process control and Systems engineering for BKW (webinars and project)
  • Automatic control, basic course for CMN (webinars and lab sessions)
  • Assistant supervisor for the Master's thesis by Johanna Wilroth, Domain Adaptation for Attention Steering. Johanna was awarded a scholarship for her Master's thesis.







I was awarded this years scholarship from the Karl-Erik Sahlbergs foundation for my excellent Master's thesis. 

Antibodies are target-searching drugs used for the treatment of severe diseases. The use of antibody-based drugs is, among other things, limited by expensive production methods. In Fridas Master's thesis, she gives an excellent description of how advanced process methods can contribute to improved antibody production. The presentation of results and suggestions of 'Future Work' is done excellently in the thesis.





Other activities


I was chosen as deputy Ph.D. student representative in the Board of the Department of Automatic Control.
