  • The Theory Group at KTH is arranging the 5th Swedish Summer School in Computer Science (S3CS 2018) August 5-11, 2018, with lectures by Ronald de Wolf on quantum computing and Oded Regev on lattices and cryptography. More information and instructions for how to apply should appear in February or so.
  • I am the main organizer of the workshop Proof Complexity at Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik at the turn of the month January-February 2018, as well as the workshop Theory and Practice of Satisfiability Solving at Casa Matemática Oaxaca (affiliated with BIRS) in August 2018.
  • I am on the program committees for the conferences CSR '18, IJCAI '18, and SAT '18.
  • Interested in doing a research-oriented Master's thesis project? I have a number of proposals for projects that I would be happy to supervise. (Note, however, that these projects are intended for students registered at KTH or who are geographically close and can work on their thesis here at KTH.)

Professional activities

I am an Associate Professor in the Theoretical Computer Science Group at the School of Electrical Enginering and Computer Science (EECS) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

During the academic years 2008-09 and 2009-10, 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.
