Hire me. Here's why!

A short summary

I believe in doing and being able to do the right thing, in killing snakes and in beauty in simplicity.

I am an experienced data wrangler and researcher with a unique combination of domain-knowledge and Machine Learning competence. As a researcher I am working with Machine Intelligence applied to all areas of 4G and 5G Radio Access Networks (RAN). Previously, as a System Engineer I was working with LTE RAN where I gained experience in product development, simulation, problem solving and troubleshooting in the areas of wireless technologies and end-to-end services.

My special interest areas are big and messy datasets, distributed machine learning, TCP/IP, and network troubleshooting using statistical and machine learning methods.

Learning things is what drives me — I believe that there is always room for improvement, especially with regards to my own abilities, and I constantly seek to sharpen my skills.

List of skills

Data science

I am an industrial PhD student in Machine Learning. I care about things like statistical significance and reproducibility. I am no graphic artist, but I like to draw stuff, make pretty plots and mess with colors and line widths. Data is no good without visualization. I don't have a PhD yet (working on it!), but I have passion.


My languages of choice are Python and R, but I can also work with MATLAB, Bash, C/C++, CSS, HTML, Java, Javascript, SQL, etc. I have worked briefly as a programmer, but my skills are more in rapid prototyping and data analysis than production quality code. By the way, this resume is built using Javascript.


I have a decade of experience in mobile networks. I've spent countless hours troubleshooting in an end-2-end environment including WCDMA and LTE networks. Wireshark is one of my favorite tools (I have even contributed with a few lines of code), but I also work a lot with scripts.


I can sometimes be seen with an old Canon F-1 over my shoulder or wielding a Hasselblad 500CM, but I am no stranger to digital cameras either. I feel at home in Lightroom and Photoshop. Check out my portfolio.

Hire me and I'll show you how long the list of skills really is.
