Together with Kurt Johansson and Kevin Schnelli I am part on the focus group on "Random matrices, stochastics models and analysis" within the Mathematics Department at KTH. Click here for more details on our group and it activities.

I am currently receiving funding from the Swedish Research council grants VR-2012-3128 and VR-2016-05450, the Gustafsson Foundation and the Knut and Allice Wallenberg foundation.
