I am a Zelevinsky Research Instructor and a Wallenberg Post-doctoral Fellow at the Department of Mathematics of Northeastern University. I co-organize of the GASC seminar.

Before I was a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Post-doc at the University of Fribourg under the mentoring of Emanuele Delucchi. Here it is the link to my previous research group: A:C&T.

I did my doctoral studies at Stockholm University. I was a student of Anders Björner and Torsten Ekedahl. Click here if you want to see my math family tree.

Teaching at University of Fribourg

My position does not involve teaching, but I am anyway covering some lecturer and teaching assistant duties.

Teaching assistant for the course: Algebra and Geometry II.
The exercise sessions are every Tuesday at 15:15 to 17:00.

Lecturer of the minicourse: "Lessons on background in matroid theory and commutative algebra", May.

Teaching assistant for the course: Algebra and Geometry II.
The exercise sessions are every Tuesday at 15:15 to 17:00.

Teaching at Stockholm University (during my Ph.D).

Swedish rules about teaching during PhD (really important to know): 
In Sweden the PhD grant is normally for 4 years. If you decide to teach during your doctoral studies, then you get a time extension of one year. In this case your time will be splitted as follows: 80% for the research and 20% for teaching. 

20% of your time corresponds to 300 hours of teaching every academic year. You are allowed to move this amount of work with respect to your PhD needs: for example you can teach more a year and get a free semester. 

I know what you are thinking: "300 is a lot!!". You are right!!

Relevant Teaching Experience
The most interesting part of my teaching is a successful experiment that I started in 2010, supported by Boris Shapiro. This is the Extraseminar classes. Essentially, we have organized a perpendicular set of lectures for the more interested students of the first year of mathematics (this at the Stockholm University includes students that could follow also Physics, Chemestry, etc). These lectures are student oriented: this means we construct an attractive mathematical path following the students taste. 

It follows my teaching duties:
Advisor Works:
  • Bachelor Advisor of NIKLAS HEDBERG. The thesis study the solutions of an ODE-system
  • Master Advisor of JANVIER NDAHIMANA RUKUNDO. The thesis is about Genetic Algorithm and their applications.
  • Master Advisor of MANISHIMWE ALEXIS. He study the Hausdorff's mesure and the Soap Bubbles conjecture.

Academic Year 2012-2013:
  • Seminarisgruppen for Matematik I (Bachelor Course) [24 seminars, semester January-May 2013]
  • Extraseminars (Bachelor Course) [semester January-May 2013, every week].

Academic Year 2011-2012:
  • Seminarisgruppen for Matematik I (Bachelor Course) [12 seminars, semester August-December 2011]
  • Extraseminars (Bachelor Course) [One year of seminars: 2011-12 every week]
  • Extraseminars (Bachelor Course) [One year of seminars: 2012 every week]
  • Seminarisgruppen for Matematik I (Bachelor Course) [12 seminars, semester January-May 2012]
  • Räkneövning for Matematik I (Bachelor Course) [12 seminars, semester January-May 2012]
  • Handledning for Matematik I (Bachelor Course) [12 times, semester January-May 2012]
