I made my first electric circuit when I was 5, wrote my first program when I was 10 and made my first physics simulation when I was 15. I've been enthusiastic about technology since I was born.

Hi! I'm

t r o e l s

Tech enthusiast since 1983

Current employment

I am employed at Nokia TECH in the Advanced Research Lab in Cambridge, UK. My main occupation is researching effective solutions for managing user health care data and building concepts around it.

About me

About me


I made my first electric circuit when I was 5, wrote my first program when I was 10 and made my first physics simulation when I was 15. I've been enthusiastic about technology since I was born and have worked with many different fields including algorithm design, quantum computing platforms and machine learning. Recently, I've mainly been interested in classical hardware architectures, machine learning, distributed ledgers and business development around these fields.

Tech for a better life

I believe that humans can build a better world by continuously develop, improve and refine the technology that surrounds us.

Building value for humanity

I strive towards building value in whatever I do, regardless whether I am working with quantum computing or health.

International recognised research

With multiple publications in high ranking journals such as Science and Nature Physics, my research is recognised internationally.

Health care is broken

The world has changed, but our health care systems have not. Did you know that it is next to impossible to get your health records located in one country when you live in another?

What I do

What I do


I am a part of a team who designs blockchain implementations and related applications with focus on digital health. Our vision is to simplify health data management and make it work seamlessly across organisations and countries. Our solutions are user-centred with strong focus on privacy.


I've also worked on machine learning, FPGA design, quantum computing, optimisation, physics and many other things.

Coding

I spend a great part of my life coding. Most codes are done in C++ or Python. I have 15+ years of experience in C++ and 5+ in Python.

Rapid prototyping

Part of my activities include rapid prototyping where I work with building hardware proof-of-concepts. Typically, I use OpenSCAD for 3D designs and prototype boards for electronics, although I have some experience with Eagle CAD and similar software.

Skills

I use a wide variety of skills in my work. Below are some of my most useful skills and my own perception of my level.

Interests

Interests


Creating companies

Over time, I've started a few companies. I have experience with running both consultancy services and retail shops.

Start-ups

I am founding the company Wonop which makes solutions for personal assistance and other AI related topics.

Tech exploration

I spend a great amount of time on general technology exploration. Naturally, I am a Kickstarter addict.

Interlude

Interlude

Why don't you take a break and enjoy these rotating LEDs? Yep, that's the kind of stuff you do when you have too much time.

Selected projects which I think are cool.

Blockchains

1 Nov 2015 - now

Together with our skilled team, I've been exploring blockchains with focus on many different areas including media distribution, digital health, payment systems and other areas.

Depth mapping

1 dec 2015 - 1 jun 2016

Together with colleagues we developed depth mapping algorithms based on the Potts model and improved them. We also developed FPGA codes and concepts related real-time depth map generation.

Hardware Bitcoin wallets

01 feb 2014 - now

As the popularity of Bitcoin was rising, I started developing a Bitcoin hardware wallet. After joining Nokia, this project was adopted and accelerated in our research team. Over time, the focus has changed to a more general ledger enabled hardware solution.

Defining quantum speedup

01 oct 2011 - 01 oct 2014

I worked at ETH as a post doc in Matthias Troyers group where we studied D-Wave One and Two. With multiple publications in Science and a Nature Physics paper, our work is internationally recognised as research on the highest level.
