I received a PhD in Computerised Image processing at Uppsala university in 2004, where computer graphics, mathematics, parallel programming and visualisation were important parts of the PhD studies. Since then I was working half time at UPPMAX as an application expert in scientific visualisation for 9 years. In 2011 I spent one year at IIT, CNR, Pisa in Italy as an ERCIM fellow and after that I received a full time position as associate professor at Uppsala University. From October 2019 I am Professor in Computerised Image Processing at Uppsala University.
My recent research has focused on computer vision and image processing, especially for applications in microscopy, aerial photography and hand written text recognition. I have now a postdoc and a PhD student that are focusing on such things as scribe identification and semi automatic transcription of medieval documents using a combination of word spotting and visualisation techniques.
