Top grade graduate from elementary school, secondary school scholarship receiver, currently student at the premier technical university of Sweden. Technology is a great passion of mine and I'm very interested in things like engineering, programming, network communications and computer science.
Writing code and creating new products is one of my favourite things to do, I really like the creativity and problem-solving that comes with it. I'm not only technical but also have a background in music production and skills in image and video editing, graphics and layout as well as social sciences.
I'm interested in full-stack development, since it allows you to put all of your skills to use and get a comprehensive idea of the entire project.
Studying advanced level courses in computer science, on the track Software Technology.
NTU in Singapore is a partner university with KTH, which gave me the opportunity to study there for a semester. NTU was ranked 2nd in the world for its education in Computer Science (in the U.S. News and World Report Best Global Universities Rankings 2019).
The premier technical university of Sweden, ranked 10 in the world at creating the best programmers.
The most popular course at Harvard.
Was one of the most active students in the programming and networking classes. Helped maintain and upgrade the equipment in the networking lab, including installing switches and routers in racks.
My two first years of secondary school was in a social sciences programme where I studied such things as psychology, history, journalism and media production. After a while I realized that I was much more interested in technology, so I switched to Programming and Networking.
StayToStudy.com is a platform for students to find accommodation during their studies and for people to sublet their rooms/apartments to students. This is a startup I created with a couple of my best friends at KTH. Currently we are in an Alpha phase, so the website is currently like a showcase of what the final product will be like. My contributions are primarily in the frontend which is written in React, as well as in developing the architecture and business model of the platform.
Part of the core team building up the startup together with the founder. Read more here.
Working as a software consultant, so far I've been responsible for an iOS project where I worked on updating it for iOS 10 and adding some features, working in Xcode and Swift. Has taught me about working agile and working directly with a client.
Helping a student during weekends with mainly natural sciences (mathematics, biology, chemistry), responsible for raising her grades and understanding. I've improved my skills in explaining concepts and making things easy to understand.
Set up a private cloud for the client as their previous cloud solution was not adequate. I was responsible for researching and choosing a solution as well as implementing it together with another consultant.
Worked alongside two other summer workers with developing a new documentation platform for both internal use and to deploy to customers such as Google, Apple, Volvo, BMW, AT&T and Verizon. We created an automated transfer tool in Java to clean up the existing documentation source and enter it into the new system, which we based in an open source wiki that we customized. After we had a demo version of the application working we transformed it into a Docker solution and set it up on a Linux server. Our supervisors were very happy with the results and impressed we managed to do so much during our time there.
Wrote articles for some of the largest technology magazines in Sweden. I came up with my own ideas, pitched them and realized them. This had a positive impact on my creativity and ability to sell ideas.
Helped a company move to a new location, installed workstations. Made me realize I want to work with something more challenging than simple IT tasks. I want to use technology to create new solutions that enrich the lives of others.
Working together with three other representatives and the professor of the course to find ways to improve the quality of it, using feedback from the rest of the students.
Områdesföreningen is the association taking care of the facilities at the student living quarters called Forum, at Östermalm, Stockholm. I'm currently working with the rest of the board to upgrade and renovate our facilities (a gym, music studio etc.). I'm also our representative towards SSF, which helps students in Stockholm that live in student accommodations.
Responsible for organizing events with the Business Group; such as lunch lectures and pub nights with companies interested in hiring computer science students.
Responsible for organizing the events associated with "D-Dagen" - the career fair organized for all members of Konglig Datasektionen, this year the largest ever. Was part of the sales team and helped companies with any questions they had. Helped two companies with their attendance at the D-Dagen fair, including setting up their booths and operations during the day.
Prylmångleriet is an organisation of Konglig Datasektionen that sells merchandise from the chapter, such as t-shirts and sew-on patches. I helped organize sales.
Received for best grades during second year, at my school which had approximately 1500 students.
Received for completing the most popular course at Harvard.
Here is a selection of some of the projects I've done. I enjoy coming up with projects of my own - both to learn and innovate. Working with others are great opportunities for getting new perspectives and improving teamwork skills.

After being introduced to React Native I was eager to create my first Android app. I decided to develop an app that lets you set multiple timers, since the Clock app that comes with Android usually only allows you to set one timer at a time. Working on Kimer was a learning experience - both with using React Native and also publishing an app to the Google Play Store as well as implementing In-App-Purchases. Because the purpose of working on it was learning I moved on to other projects when I felt I had maximized my learning (which is why the app still has some bugs - ehm, I mean features.)
As part of the course DD1393 I worked together with a group of eleven other KTH students for a startup called Acoija. Our goal with the project is to create the hardware and software for a smart IoT-product for air purification. My role is in the software team where I work on the iOS app in Swift. I'm also part of the cloud team, meaning I and two other students ensure:
For a project course in my first year at KTH I created a game engine together with a friend. We wrote it in Java with the goal to implement a rather simple round-based top-down 2D shooter. Since the course was very short we only had time to implement the core engine functionality (like collision detection and handling) and a very simple demo of what the gameplay was going to be like. This project made me reflect on and learn a lot about software architecture, since we wanted our game engine to generalized so that it could be used to implement other games too.
You can look at the code here.
A collaboration made with a fellow KTH classmate; Spoopy Space is an arcade-style infinite runner game implemented on a ChipKIT microcontroller using MIPS Assembly and C. This is the most hardware-oriented project I've worked on, since the code is so tightly bound to the specific CPU and other hardware components, such as the LED-display and buttons we used. Some of the biggest challenges we faced during this project was parsing complex data sheets and manuals for hardware, working with bit-level instructions on registers and limited resources.
As project for the course DH1620 me and a group of classmates created a prototype for an app called Tinfo. The purpose of which was to help commuters (primarily on the subway) make better decisions about their journeys. Mainly the focus was on generating crowdsourced reports on current traffic situations and generating routes that avoid big crowds, or suggestions on better times of the day to make the journey.
Since it was a project in Human-Computer-Interaction we did lots of studies on how user friendly the app was, using established methods and iterative design. Our project was selected by a jury for second place in the final contest of the course.
When I found out about JavaFX I wanted to try and make something of my own, so during the Christmas holidays I created a desktop application that allows you to very easily download a Youtube video as an MP3 file.
It was my first concurrent application, meaning multiple files can be downloaded simultaneously.
