Works at

Associate professor at Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics Role: Assistant head of department
Affiliated as research fellow at Umeå Mathematics Education Research Centre (UMERC)

I defended my Ph.D. thesis in Complex Analysis in 2012, which marked the beginning of my journey as a scholar. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to continue exploring the fascinating intricacies of this field while also striving to pass on my knowledge to the next generation of mathematicians. In recognition of my dedication to teaching, I have been awarded the title of Excellent Teacher and have received numerous pedagogical awards. In 2017, I was honored to receive the Umeå Student Union of Science and Technology pedagogical award. In 2022, I was proud to be awarded the Faculty of Science and Technology's pedagogical prize.

In addition to my complex analysis research, I am interested in the educational side of my work. Specifically, I have been exploring educational psychology, which focuses on the psychological and cognitive processes underpinning learning and teaching. This interest has been driven by a desire to improve my teaching practices and contribute to developing more effective teaching methods and strategies. Through my research, I aim to gain a deeper understanding of how students learn, how different teaching methods can impact learning outcomes, and how we can create learning environments that are both engaging and effective.

As assistant head of the department, I am involved in leading the department's research efforts. My primary focus is to support our researchers and raise the department’s position in mathematics research in Sweden and globally.

In all my endeavors, I strive to uphold the highest standards of academic excellence. Whether teaching in the classroom, mentoring students in research or leading the department's research efforts, I am committed to advancing our collective knowledge and contributing to the intellectual growth of our community.
