KARL JAKOB LARSSON

Computer Science Engineering student who wants to build products users love. Great JavaScript and CSS skills, including React. Prefers functional programming. Strong communication skills developed in several nonprofit commitments.

Outside of programming I spend time on synthesisers and coffee.

Currently writing my master thesis with the draft title: Symbolic Functional Finite Exterior Calculus. We aim to improve the performance of a partial differential equation solver by implementing the front-end as a symbolic domain specific language written in Haskell.
