Hey! I am a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at the School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester, UK. This site contains information about my research, teaching and travel plans related to the university.
I am running a research group ( in the University of Manchester and we are part of the Analysis and Dynamical systems group.


I am originally from southern Finland where I studied mathematics and completed my PhD at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Helsinki in 2012 under the supervision of Pertti Mattila. The studies were mostly funded by the Emil Aaltonen Foundation and Antti Kupiainen's ACADFI Centre of Excellence "Analysis and Dynamics Research".

Around and after the time of graduation I worked as a short term Project Researcher at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Oulu hosted by Maarit Järvenpää until in 2013 I went for one year to the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol, UK, as a Research Associate to work with Thomas Jordan. Then for 2014 and most of 2015 I worked as a Research Fellow in Mike Hochman's ERC project FractalsAndMetricNT "Fractals, algebraic dynamics and metric number theory" at the Einstein Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. From 2015 until 2017 I was a European Union funded Marie Curie Research Fellow at the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol, UK.
