Looking for a thesis project?

Currently (November 2022), I am looking for master/bachelor students that wish to do a thesis work on how much more accurate a skeleton tracking in sports can be if we use multiple time-synchronised smartphones. Contact me if you are interested!

Research Projects


  • A VINNOVA project on AI for hypotension prediction together with Karolinska University Hospital and Getinge/Maquet
