Biography
Mathias started his PhD at the Center for Computer Games Research in September 2018. As an industrial PhD fellow he is collaborating closely with the company Blackwood Seven.

The purpose of the collaboration is to apply state-of-the-art research to solve real-world problems in the industry.

His current research focuses on timeseries datasets and generative models using deep latent variable methods.

He holds a MSc in Software Development (Advanced Computing track) with specialization in Business Intelligence from the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU), and a BSc in Software Development – also from ITU.
