I'm a high school teacher in mathematics, and I have a master's degree in mathematics from Linnaeus University. In February 2020 I defended my thesis Residue fixed point index and wildly ramified power series.


In the fall of 2020 I'm teaching Linear algebra (1ma406/1ma901). Previously I've been involved in many of the first year courses in mathematics and some in mathematics education and computer science here at Linnaeus. However currently I'm involved in the following courses

  • Introduction to machine learning (Spring)
  • Linear algebra (Fall)


My primary research interest is dynamical systems, discrete mathematics and machine learning. In my thesis I study iterations of power series giving rise to discrete dynamical systems. The iterated functions are studied both from a dynamical perspective and from a number theoretic point of view. The problem have lead to both results in number theory, non-archimedean dynamics, and in complex dynamics. In machine learning my interest is broad, and currently I'm working in a project together with Björn Lindenberg and Karl-Olof Lindahl in reinforcement learning.
