Academic interests

Most of my work is related to complex geometry. I'm interested in canonical metrics on complex manifolds and their relations to algebro-geometric stability and concepts in probability theory. Along another line, I'm also interested in canonical metrics on certain real (affine) manifolds related to the Strominger-Yau-Zaslov conjecture in mirror symmetry. The main tools I use in my research come from geometric analysis. 


I did my PhD at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. My thesis advisors where Robert Berman and David Witt Nyström. I'm now a postdoc/visiting researcher at University of Oslo. From August 2019 - 2022 I will be at University of Maryland for a postdoctoral fellowship.
