  • The Department of Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen is hiring a tenure-track assistant professor in computational complexity theory. The announcement will hopefully be posted in November and the application deadline will likely be in mid-January. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested and/or have any questions regarding this position!
  • The MIAO research group is off to a roaring start in Copenhagen and Lund!
  • My (former) PhD student Susanna F. de Rezende has received the Stockholm Mathematics Centre Prize for Excellent Doctoral Dissertation 2018/2019 and was featured as one of the rising stars at STOC '20. Congratulations, Susanna!
  • A team including MIAO members Jo Devriendt and Stephan Gocht placed second in the planning track and third in the main track of the SAT Competition 2020. Congratulations, Jo and Stephan!

Professional activities

I am a professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and also have a part-time affiliation with the the Department of Computer Science at Lund University. For now, my webpages still reside at KTH, and are being updated here, but this will change during 2020.

I worked at KTH as an assistant professor and then associate professor during the years 2011-2019. During 2008-2010 I was a postdoc at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology hosted by Madhu Sudan. Prior to that I was a PhD student of Johan Håstad in the Theory Group at KTH, where I defended my PhD thesis in May 2008. For those who would prefer not to read the whole thesis there are instead [in Swedish only] a short popular science summary and a slightly longer popular science overview of my PhD project research.
