About me

  • Assistant Professor in Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and head of NatMEG (the
    National Facility for Magnetoencephalography,
    I am an electrical engineer by training. I did my PhD at Chalmers University
    in Gothenburg, Sweden, where I developed an on-scalp magnetoencephalography
    (MEG) system using high-Tc SQUID sensors and benchmarked it against the
    conventional MEG system at KI – including the first epilepsy recording with
    on-scalp MEG. After defending, I joined Professor Lauri Parkkonen’s
    Neuroimaging Methods group at Aalto University, Finland, where I developed
    novel optically pumped magnetometer (OPM) sensors for MEG.


  • My research focuses on developing on-scalp MEG using next-generation sensors.
    In addition to developing hardware and methods for on-scalp MEG, I am
    investigating academic (such as high-resolution imaging) and clinical
    on-scalp MEG applications (such as epilepsy and brain computer interfaces for
    patients with motor impairment).
