Who am I?

I began life in Enköping, Sweden in 1986. As a young boy, I quickly found an interest in Mathematics and Computer Science, which led me to study Engineering and then to pursue a PhD based on research and coursework.

Research

I received my PhD degree in May 2016 after successfully defending my thesis which contained a total of 17 peer-reviewed papers (13 conference papers and 3 journal papers) published at top conferences and journals in the field. During and after my PhD studies, I have spent time as a visiting academic at the University of New South Wales,  Australia and have been a PostDoc at the division of Signals and Systems at Uppsala University, the division of Statistics and Machine Learning at Linköping University as well as at the School of Engineering at the University of Newcastle, Australia.I have also worked as a Research Scientist at Sectra AB.

Today

I am currently an entrepreneur with my own consultancy in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine learning (ML) and Data Science as well as co-founder in multiple startups aiming to spread AI knowledge to companies and to revolutionize agriculture with AI.

My companies

I am currently an entrepreneur working to spread knowledge about AI and Data Science to companies and organizations.

Kotte Consulting AB

My consulting company provides services in algorithm development, implementation, education and analysis using methods from statistics, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Teambuild on Tech

This is a new concept which combines traditional teambuilding with modern ways of working together and with innovation, new technology and future trends. It is new, different and fun! We give your co-workers the change to develop their collaboration skills in a context that they actually care a lot about – their future!

My research

My research is situated somewhere between Computational statistics and Machine learning. Three common themes are:

  • Bayesian inference: using prior information and quantifying uncertainty,
  • Dynamical systems: the behaviour changes over time,
  • Acceleration of methods: decreasing the computational time to get the answer.

I usually work with methods such as:

  • Monte Carlo methods (particle filtering, sequential Monte Carlo and Markov chain Monte Carlo),
  • Gaussian/Dirichlet processes and
  • Mixture models.

A quite general introduction to these themes and methods is found in the introductory chapter of my PhD thesis.

Some of my current hobby projects

I like to keep busy during my spare time with being outdoors, reading books, running, swimming, weight-lifting, yoga, cooking and socializing. Each year, I decide on some special focus areas and the current are:

Swedish circuit

Preparing for 90 km cross-country skiing, 300 km biking on country roads, 30 km running in hilly terrain and 3 km open-water swimming.

Self-improvement

Focusing on meditation, Stoicism and Toastmasters International.

Playing the guitar

Following the awesome free courses offered by Justin Guitar to learn to play some Foo Fighters, Coldplay and Death Cab for Cutie.

Photography

Focusing on landscapes and streets using my Nikon D7200. Have a look.
