Mrs Agnethe Olsen

Graduate Demonstrator

School of Biosciences


I graduated from the University of Bergen, Norway, with a BSc in Physics and an MSc in Experimental Particle Physics in 2014, during which I searched for unseen particles at the ATLAS experiment at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. Following this I worked as an RA in Particle Physics at MIT for a year, looking at Machine Learning in trigger systems. I moved to Bristol in 2015 and completed a PGCE in Physics at Bristol University in 2016 before I worked within IT data and infrastructure in the Civil Service for 4.5 years. In 2020 I graduated with an MSc in Computing from Cardiff University, for which I used Natural Language Processing (computational methods to investigate language and speech) to investigate how Higher Education Providers communicate with their students on Twitter. 

I am now combining my experience of teaching, big data, machine learning and social media as a PhD researcher in the School of Biosciences. I am looking at automatic disease detection in wildlife from image data using Computer Vision (computational methods to investigate images and video) and with Citizen Science.
