A picture of me
#About me I recently started as a postdoc at KTH, Stockholm, working with Svante Linusson. Before that, (2015-2017) I worked as a postdoc at University of Pennsylvania, with Jim Haglund, funded by a grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation. In 2014, I worked as a postdoc at Universität Zurich, Schweiz with Valentin Féray. My field of research is representation theory and combinatorics, more specifically, polynomials given by structure constants (Kostka-coefficients, characters of the symmetric group) and Jack generalizations of these, as well as chromatic symmetric functions, LLT polynomials and so on. In Spring 2013 I defended my thesis titled _Combinatorial Methods in Complex Analysis_, where Boris Shapiro was my primary advisor. My research interests are mainly combinatorics, complex analysis and algebraic geometry. My favorite research tools are _Mathematica_, _OEIS_, _FinstStat_, _MathOverflow_, _WolframAlpha_ and _Google_. I am also a bit interested in special polynomials, for example real-rooted polynomials, and polynomials obtained from combinatorial statistics. Finally, I must admit that I have a soft spot for tilings, discrete dynamical systems, machine learning, neural networks and cellular automata. ##List of publications * *(W.

You can browse the source on Sourceforge. On this website, you will also find several of my smaller projects. They revolve around *Mathematica*, *LaTeX*, *Programming*, *Generative art* and other things related to mathematics. ##About this website I use MathJax for rendering mathematics and a Markdown converter for the contents.
