Background and activities

I have a strong interest for creative use of machine learning/statistical modeling for specific applications. Examples of modeling frameworks and applications I work within are:

  • Generative modeling (diffusion modeling, GANs)
  • Representation learning
  • Active Learning
  • Modeling of time series
    • Forecasting
    • Synthetic data generation
    • Imputation/denoising
  • Machine learning with food
  • Content extraction and relation extraction from text using machine learning

My primary position is Research Scientist at Abelee, and I am also the founder (with Gudmund Hermansen) of Oslo Data Science Meetup.
