I am an associate professor (docent) at Chalmers University, Gothenburg. My research is mostly concerned with the various interactions between ergodic theory, random walks, number theory and arithmetic combinatorics.

Research interests

Ergodic theory, arithmetic combinatorics (mostly approximate groups), geometry and dynamics on homogeneous spaces.

Teaching at Chalmers and elsewhere

Arithmetic Combinatorics. Lecture notes (essentially complete)
Representation Theory, Part I. Lecture notes (partially complete)
Topological Dynamics, Lecture notes (far from complete)
