In June 2019 I defended my PhD thesis, written at KTH under the supervision of Ari Laptev. As of November 2019 I am a postdoc at Caltech working with Rupert L. Frank. The position is supported by a fellowship from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation (KAW).

Research interests
Spectral theory of partial differential, pseudodifferential and Fourier integral operators, asymptotic analysis, convex geometry, geometric measure theory and mathematical physics. In particular shape optimization in spectral theory, spectral asymptotics, many-body quantum mechanics and sharp spectral and geometric inequalities.
