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 stipend from the Swedish Research Council (VR), the first 8 months in Paris with Prof. Philippe Flajolet and Dr Nicholas Broutin and then for 1½ years in 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. Since October, 2014 I am a Docent (associate professor) in Mathematics. In August 2015 I have moved to a new position in mathematics (probability theory and analysis) at Uppsala University.

Major External Funding:
