Research interests
My research interests are broadly spread over analysis, geometry and problems from mathematical physics.
The problems I work on often lie in the area of interplay between global analysis,
index theory and spectral theory.
In particular, I am interested in the more analytic aspects of noncommutative geometry
and its applications in these areas. In many of the questions I study, the starting point
is to use operators on Hilbert spaces to study geometry, often reducing geometric problems to analytic problems.
Conversely, I also work on applying geometric ideas of an index theoretical nature to study analytic problems.
Read more about this on the
following page about my research
or
see my list of publications.
The work I do can be categorized into one of the following groups:
- Index theory and secondary invariants
- Noncommutative geometry
- Spectral geometry and global analysis
Teaching
Currently I teach:
- Examiner and lecturer in course
Transformteori och analytiska funktioner, at the University of Gothenburg, Quarter 3 2017/18.
- Examiner and lecturer in topics course on Operator Algebras at masters/PhD level in the University of Copenhagen, Quarter 1 2017/18.
