Research area: Analysis

PhD in Mathematics obtained at University of Jyväskylä (2015)


I got my PhD in University of Jyväskylä in 2015 under supervision of Pekka Koskela. During 2016-2017 I spent 1,5 years in Charles University in Prague as a postdoc working with Stanislav Hencl.

Research lines

I am interested in areas of analysis which are in some way related to complex analysis and conformal mappings. That is, topics such as quasiconformal and quasiregular mappings and Sobolev homeomorphisms. Lately, I have been involved most with the latter. I am also interested and trying to expand my knowledge in areas close to these topics such as calculus of variations, geometric measure theory and partial differential equations.
