I’m a Swedish expat living in Los Angeles who spends my free time hiking and cooking. For longer breaks, I go to Stockholm, its archipelago, and my hometown Karlstad. I used to have many hobbies (volunteer work as an instructor in mathematics, member of marching bands and a symphonic orchestra, playwright), but during PhD life, I focus on staying in touch with friends and nature, exercising, trekking, and occasionally playing the trombone.
My Swedish lastname turns out to be difficult to pronounce, so here’s a guide to an English approximation.
Jesper is pronounced Yes-per, but I don’t mind Jesper at all.
