Hi! I’m a Senior Machine Learning Engineer at Sopra Steria. I have strong experience in using artificial intelligence and image analysis techniques for various medical applications, aiming to develop solutions that can assist clinicians in their daily practice.

I was a MSc student at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT), from August 2014 to June 2019, in applied physics and mathematics, specializing in machine learning and statistics. I completed a summer internship at SINTEF Digital in 2018, which I ended up collaborating with on my Master’s thesis. From January 2019, I worked part-time at SINTEF while finishing my degree.

I started my PhD fellowship October 2019 in collaboration with the same research group as for my Master’s thesis. I was a PhD Candidate until 2023, where I published several papers on computational pathology, while I also held a position as a Research Scientist at the Medical Image Analysis group at SINTEF.

In parallel to my PhD work, I have developed open, standalone software for C++ and Python, mainly using Qt5/PySide6 (e.g., FastPathology and Raidionics). I have published open command line tools (e.g., livermask), developed Python packages (e.g., gradient-accumulator, torchstain), and published articles to high-impact scientific journals related to medical image analysis and deep learning (on topics such as image classification, semantic segmentation, image-to-image registration, high-performance computing, semi-supervised learning, and natural language processing).

I have also written a book chapter and acted as a reviewer for scientific journals, such as Medical Image Analysis, Nature Scientific Reports, Frontiers in Medicine, IJCARS, QIMS, and BMC Medical Imaging. Lastly, I have (co-)supervised five Master’s students working on using deep learning for supervised/semi-supervised segmentation of 3D medical images (CT), multilabel histopathology image classification, and bronchoscopy video navigation.
