My Education

Main Building @ NTNU Gløshaugen Campus

I am currently enrolled in the fourth year of the “Applied Physics and Mathematics” Master’s in Science degree at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. Lately I have been specializing within applied statistics, and I’m planning on writing my project thesis on the application of neural networks on Lidar data in order to detect roof polygons.

Content

  • Visualizing 5 Years of University Education
    A data-driven summary of my master’s degree. The article focuses on applying exploratory data analysis in order to identify any correlations between time investment and final grades. It uses various data sources, such as time tracking data from toggl and official grade distributions published by NTNU. The article should therefore give some additional insight into my education compared to an ordinary CV.
  • Statistical Learning Quiz
    A quiz for the course “TMA4268 - Statistical Learning”. Most of the questions are focused on formulas, so it might not be the best tool to test your understanding of the topic.

Coursework

Some of the most time intensive work at NTNU consists of writing one project report after another. Below I present a compilation of (a subset) of all my finished coursework in reverse chronological order. This is intended to give the reader some insight in what university coursework looks like and how it changes over the five years of a university degree. Most of the earlier work is written in Norwegian, but most of the recent work is in English.
