I'm a PhD student in mathematical statistics at Uppsala University. I do research in theoretical statistics and tackle applied problems as a consultant.

I'm interested a wide range of statistical problems, including multivariate hypothesis testing, high-dimensional problems, model diagnostics and inference for discrete distributions. I'm particularly interested in computer-intensive methods (and implementing them in R, of course).

I've been teaching part time since 2008, giving lectures, problem solving sessions and computer exercises in introductory courses for engineers as well as courses on theoretical inference, linear models, experimental designs, multivariate statistics and risk analysis.
