My courses


My specific field of research is random graphs and especially random trees. I defended my PhD thesis “Split Trees, Cuttings and Explosions” in Uppsala in February, 2010 with Prof. Svante Janson as  primary supervisor. Thereafter I spent two years abroad on a postdoc fellowship from the Swedish Research Council (VR), the first 8 months at INRIA in Paris with Prof. Philippe Flajolet and Dr Nicolas Broutin and then for 1½ years at Univ of Cambridge with Prof. Béla Bollobás and his group. In August, 2012 I got a  tenured position as Assoc. Prof. (Senior Lecturer) at the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University and from  October, 2014 I am a Docent (associate professor) in Mathematics. From August 2015 I have a position in mathematics (probability theory and analysis) at the Dept of Mathematics at Uppsala University.
