Background and activities

Associate Professor at Department of Engineering Cybernetics, NTNU, since 2018. Previously postdoctoral fellow at the same department (2014–2017).
Coordinator for the Artificial Pancreas Trondheim research group (APT) and important contributor in establishing this research group. The long-term aim of APT's research is to develop a system for closed-loop glucose control in diabetes mellitus type 1 and 2 and in intensive care patients. APT is part of Centre for Digital Life Norway.

Current research interests include artificial pancreas, closed-loop glucose control, glucose sensing, mathematical modeling, system identification, model-based control, pattern recognition, machine learning, sensor fusion and acoustics.

From 2008 to 2013, Anders was employed as a PhD student and worked on myoelectric control of upper limb prostheses. His thesis was entitled Robust, coordinated and proportional control of myoelectric upper-limb prostheses. Currently the prosthesis control research is not being prioritized, due to the focus on APT/glucose control.
