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 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.
I am yet to decided which masters to choose, but I am leaning towards Software Development.
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.
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.
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.
Thorildsplans Gymnasium, 2015
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.
As part of the course DD1393 I'm working together with a group of eleven other KTH students for a startup called Pantifi. 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:
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.
