Johan Sandberg, Ph.D.
Johan Sandberg was born in 1980 in Sweden. He received the M.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics in 2005 and the Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Statistics in 2010, both at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences at Lund University, Sweden. The main contributions of his Ph.D. thesis are a few theorems that form a framework for timefrequency analysis of nonstationary time series in discrete time rather than in continuous time. Apart from timefrequency analysis, his research field has included spectrum and cepstrum estimation of audio signals.
Since 2010, Johan Sandberg has worked within finance and risk analysis. Today, he leads the counterparty credit risk modelling team in Nordea.
