Since January 2021 I am assistant professor in computational mathematics at Umeå University. My primary research interest is the development, analysis, and implementation of numerical methods for partial differential equations.
In the past few years, much of my research effort has been devoted to efficient and robust numerical simulation of acoustic and elastic wave propagation, which are modelled by second order hyperbolic partial differential equations. For the numerical solutions, I have considered stable and high-order accurate finite difference and discontinuous Galerkin methods. This topic is still an important part of my current work. For hyperbolic problems, a recent interest is fluid mechanics governed by conservation laws. Here I am analyzing boundary closures for weighted-essentially-non-oscillatory (WENO) schemes for initial-boundary-value problems. Another research interest is multiscale modelling where material properties vary in space on different scales. I have worked on multiscale methods for flows in porous media and look forward to extending the techniques to hyperbolic problems.
Before joining Umeå University I was a lecturer at Mälardalens högskola in 2019-2020, where I taught several courses in basic mathematics and numerical methods. Before that I was a postdoc at Chalmers University of Technology in 2017-2019 working with Axel Målqvist on multiscale methods for flows in porous media. Prior to Chalmers, I obtained a PhD in scientific computing at Uppsala University with Gunilla Kreiss as advisor. We focused on high-order finite difference discretizations on nonuniform meshes for the wave equation and established error estimates for a class of discretizations in the normal mode analysis framework.
