Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Mathematics
I work at the Center of Excellence in Analysis and Dynamics Research, focusing on dynamical systems, probability and mathematical physics.
Previously, I was involved in the ERC project Mathematical Physics of Out-of-Equilibrium Systems (MPOES), and also worked at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" in Italy: Macroscopic Laws and Dynamical Systems (MALADY).
Before that, I spent several years at Courant Institute
and at Rutgers University in the United States of America.
I am an Adjunct Professor of Mathematics at the University of Helsinki and at the University of Jyväskylä.
For their notable support, I thank Emil Aaltosen Säätiö, the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation, the Academy of Finland, the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters, and the Finnish Cultural Foundation.
