My self-summary
I'm a Swedish guy who found my dream job in Groningen - designing psychophysical tests to evaluate peripheral vision.
What I’m doing with my life
Continuing the research I did during my PhD, with the aim of creating intraocular lenses that can be used by patients suffering from macular degeneration. It took quite some soul-searching to make the step from academia to industry and not get a postdoc, but in the end contributing to the creation of real products that would provide a concrete benefit to people won out, and I haven't regretted it a day.

I am an avid board gamer, and as a hobby project with my siblings we made a board game of our own (that has gotten published!) The publisher even had it translated into English, French, German, Italian and Polish.
I’m really good at
Baking, running along the corridors at work and writing silly rhymes.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm always happy and smiling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Non-fiction: Daniel Kahneman; Thinking Fast and Slow, for how it makes you understand your own mental trappings, and how your mental preferences play all these delightful tricks on you.
Jared Diamond; Guns, Germs and Steel, for how it makes you appreciate the role of geography in history.
Douglas Hofstater; Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid, for it's elegance and beauty.

Fiction: Wicked, the Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, for its gestalt shifts and reversal of previous expectations, the skill of which it takes to succeed in making a grimmer novel (which the author manages) and its contemplative writing style - how the characters reflect on their own actions.
The Quantum Thief, for its modern stream of consciousness approach and reflections on reality.
Any Pratchett book, for their quick-witted dance through all aspects of our culture.
Currently discovering Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Mario Vargas Llosa, and immensely enjoying the more unconscious reading behavior in me they seem to evoke.
The six things I could never do without
The musicals of Andrew Lloyd Webber
The foundation of all modern engineering: the Fast Fourier Transform.
Podcasts from The Teaching Company on my way to work.
Skype, for keeping in touch with friends and family in Sweden.
Google translate (but I'm working on being able to ditch this!)
Nutmeg and ginger.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm wearing a helmet when biking. Ten years of social conditioning from Stockholm, where everyone wears a helmet, is hard to undo.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–36
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
If you want to learn the best way to cut paprika.

If you can take a thought a run with it, simultaneously guiding and flowing with the conversation through mental forests and mountains while playfully throwing topics back and forth until you have no idea on how and why you ended up where you are.

If you have read a book that you loved and is convinced would make the world a better place if everyone read it.

If you have a story to tell - or if you'd like to embark on a new one.
