A picture of me

I am a postdoc at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Before coming to KTH, I used to be a postdoc at the University of Copenhagen Department of Mathematical Sciences, where I was a member of the topology group and part of the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation. I received my PhD from Stanford University in 2010. My advisor there was Professor Ralph Cohen.

My research interests lie in algebraic topology and homotopy theory, in particular string topology, parametrized homotopy theory, and field theories. Currently I am especially interested in string topology of classifying spaces.

Slides for the talk I gave at the Goodwillie birthday conference in Dubrovnik on my work on string topology of classifying spaces. Slides for an earlier short talk I gave on the same subject at the Fourth Arolla Conference on Algebraic Topology.

Some things I have been involved in organizing

I was also a co-organizer of the Copenhagen Topology Seminar 2012–13. Currently, I am organizing the joint KTH–Stockholm University Topological Activities seminar together with Philip Hackney.
