Olof Sisask

Picture of me

I have moved to Uppsala University, but this page remains somewhat active. Before the move, I was a Researcher at the Department of Mathematics at KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology. My research interests generally lie in probability, combinatorics, harmonic analysis and number theory. Know me from somewhere? I have previously been stationed at the University of Cambridge, MIT, University of Bristol, Queen Mary, University of London, University of British Columbia, and the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing.

Google Scholar provides some interesting links to papers and articles surrounding my research.

Want to study the emergence of a giant puddle in the random raindrop model? Here's a visualisation. (Puddles merge according to their barycentres.)

Public engagement
The interactive tools we used during my public lectures at Alba Nova on pi-day 2018 and at Senioruniversitetet in Dec 2018 can be found at: We also used these during the highschool teacher development day Kleinerdagen at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (KVA) on 31 Oct 2017. If you attended these and want any of the other materials we used, please email me!

I am currently lecturing Calculus; if you are a student on this course you are of course welcome to contact me with any questions you might have.
