“I hope that more attention will be given to application of the best scientific contributions.”
I am mainly occupied with projects within two of Eriksholm’s focus areas, Personalized Audiology and Cognitive Hearing Effort Compensation. I am based at Linköping University where I am primarily engaged in activities and projects involving multi-sensor processing.
In my previous jobs, up till 2016, I worked with navigation platforms in rather different fields, but then I one day stumbled across an opportunity to utilize this expertise of mine in hearing sciences as part of the Linköping University and Eriksholm collaboration. It turns out that user and target location, and orientation, are just as important in sensor processing as it is in general navigation.
Linköping University and Eriksholm Research Centre have had a close collaboration for around 30 years now, and when the opportunity occurred, I got my current position as sort of an interface, overlooking our joint activities.
Oh, many things. I love working with data and solving problems, and I really enjoy both the scientific, but definitely also the social interaction with my colleagues. Last, but not least, contributing to reducing the daily pains of people with hearing impairment motivates me a lot.
I hope to be able to contribute to making advances in hearing science and thereby to improve the life of people with hearing loss. In the end, that will be to the benefit of many others, too, for instance spouses, relatives, and friends.
Well, besides parenting, I make time for physical exercise, like biking, running, and general workouts. I also enjoy exercising my brain which I do by playing the trumpet and reading books. Finally, I like to relax by doing a bit of gardening and carpentry.
Working within my scientific field, the development within digitalization and miniaturization of electronics that has been essential in science and innovation for the past 40 years, has really made an impact on what is possible today.
I hope that more attention will be given to application of the best scientific contributions.
