Gandalf Saxe

Position: Software Engineer at Apple Inc.
Technical University of Denmark (DTU) - MSc Eng Mathematical Modelling and Computing

Gandalf has 2+ years of experience within the big tech industry – in Denmark and abroad. His student career started in physics and slowly moved towards computer science, software and machine learning as time went by. He is still passionate about physics, science and research but his work life is now with Apple, where he works to improve the Danish Siri. Gandalf has also been a summer student at CalTech and CERN.


Gandalf would’ve liked a person from an industry or job he found interesting back when he was a student. Gandalf does not have all the answers, but he does have many years of experience as a student, and he knows something about changing your focus throughout your studies. He also knows a lot about study techniques, motivation, productivity systems, and prioritization while being a student – perhaps some of these experiences could be useful to someone else.
