My experience as a student research assistant on estimating human poses

This autumn, I have been working with Associate Professor Lei Jiao on a project concerning anonymization in videos for the local law enforcement. However, Lei tasked me with a subtask; I was to estimate human poses using deep learning. A project like this has been enriching as it provides excellent experience in how machine learning is applied in the real world.

How do you write a book on Experimentalist Governance? What I learned about academic work from being a Student Research Assistant

Being a part of the book project was a great chance to learn more about a topic I was already interested, European Territorial Cooperation, but also gave me a look into the acdemic world and how scholars work. All in all, it was a great experience, where I could bring in my own ideas, but also get feedback on the tasks I was doing.

This project is about assessing the impact of a new regulation which require auditors to disclose those matters that, in the auditor’s professional judgement, were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements. The new regulation came into force in 2016, thus the project evaluated the issues relating to audit before and after the new rules.

Strategy making in EU foreign policy

I have this spring been working as a research assistant on a project concerning strategy-making in EU foreign policy. EU is currently drafting their new strategy towards Central Asia, and this project has therefore looked at how the different EU institutions and member states have been involved in this process. The project focuses on agenda-setting and coordination.

Investigating new algorithms in "Learning Automaton" at Carleton University

This autumn I went to Carleton University in Canada to investigate and bring back some exiting newly evolved algorithms in "Learning Automaton" to our university. These techniques are powerful and much better than other solutions in this research field, and can be applied to problems of databases, health care and mobile radio communications.

Learning the hard way

Spotting and cataloging subject-predicator concord errors is not a hard thing to do for anyone with a good grasp of English, and having a background in linguistics makes it even easier. It is however time consuming, and the take away from this project was mostly about managing time for me. As someone who will soon be writing a master's thesis, it was however inspirational - several possible angles for a project of my own were discovered during my work with the student texts.

The SMR video project

In recent years, with more and more extreme weather and a new world picture it is becoming more and more clear that cities need to adapt to a new level of threat, ether its natural or man-made catastrophes. The SMR project aims to be a portal for such events, and we were fortunate enough to makes some videos for them.

What is the structure of the housing market in the Norwegian cities? 

This is the pivotal question of the project on which I was working as the research assistant under the supervision of Prof. Theisen. We were analyzing the structure of the housing market with an attempt to identify - which factors affect the distribution of housing according to different types (detached houses, townhouses, flats)?

Jeg har høsten 2017 vært så heldig å få være med i forskningsprosjektet til Heidi Omdal ved Universitetet i Agder; «Foreldrenettverk når barn unngår å snakke».

Det å få være med i dette nettverket har gitt meg en mye større forståelse for diagnosen selektiv mutisme (SM) enn hva jeg kunne fått ved bare å lese teori. Det å møte hvert unike barn, foreldre og søsken, samt en del skole- og barnehagemiljø rundt barna har vært berikende og interessant. Det har synliggjort den komplekse problematikken rundt de mange utfordringene SM innebærer. Dette prosjektet har også gitt meg et lite innblikk i en forskers arbeidsmetoder.
