About Me

I am currently a Gibbs Assistant Professor at Yale University. I was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow (also at Yale) funded by a scholarship from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. I received my Ph.D. from Uppsala University in 2018, where I studied under the supervision of Andreas Strömbergsson.


I study problems related to automorphic functions and homogeneous dynamics. I am particularly interested in using methods from spectral and representation theory to prove results related to effective equidistribution. Here is a copy of my CV.
