I am a postdoctoral fellow in mathematics at the University of Alberta since September 2018. I have previously been a postdoctoral fellow at the Université Lyon 1 (France) with a grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and prior to that a visiting lecturer at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden). I obtained my PhD degree at Uppsala University (Sweden) under the supervision of Professor Ernst Dieterich.



Research
My field of research is within algebra and geometry, with connections to mathematical physics. My main interests are group schemes, in particular exceptional groups, and the classification of quantum groups and Lie bialgebras. There are remarkable objects attached to these structures: composition algebras, exceptional Jordan algebras, triality, certain quadratic forms and various torsors, among other things.

Teaching
In the fall of 2018, I lectured in Elementary Calculus (Math 114). All course information is available on eClass. I have also taught various courses at Uppsala University, the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology.
