Short Background

I started my PhD in June 2013, after getting my M.Sc degree in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering with a specialization in applied mathematics (Teknisk matematik), here in Linköping. I did my master thesis, entitled "Obstacle Detection Using an Ultrasonic Method", at Syncore technologies, where we developed a prototype for detecting people in commercial vehicles.

My Research

My current research involves different aspects of massive MIMO. In particular, I study how to page terminals (e.g. a cell phone) without channel state information at the base station. This is used as an initial step to set up a connection between the base station and the terminal. I'm also studying how to use massive MIMO technology to jam TDD links.


I've previously been a teaching assistant in TSKS01, TSKS10 and TSDT14. My current teaching involves the two courses TSKS11 and TSKS15. TSKS11 has been running for a few years now, and covers material such as Google's PageRank, used in search engines, and Collaborative Filtering, used in recommender systems. TSKS15 is a course in detection and estimation theory.
