I currently work at the Kurt Gödel Research Center at the University of Vienna
(which was recently rated to be the second best logic institute in the world!)
as a researcher (or postdoc) in
FWF project titled Analytic Structures.
I was until recently a postdoc associated to the DNRF Niels Bohr Professorship of
Lars Hesselholt, and part of the
non-commutative geometry group
at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, where I worked with
My Erdös number is 11 (using binary notation).
My research is in
set theory; my primary interests are
forcing and descriptive set theory.
At times, the list of papers on my arxiv author's page
may be more up-to-date than the list below (but it will probably always miss the first four items from this list).

Young Set Theory 2016
A while ago, the famous Young Set Theory Workshop put up its tent in
Copenhagen, organized by Karen Bakke Haga, Vibeke Quorning, Asger
Törnquist, and me. We acknowledge generous support from the DNRF Niels Bohr Professorship of Lars Hesselholt and from the University of Copenhagen.
If you are not a set theorist, maybe you will enjoy these slides;
I made them with a general mathematical audience in mind, for a talk
in the descriptive set theory seminar in Copenhagen on January 9th 2014.
Here are some slides for my talk at the 4th European Set Theory Conference in Barcelona, in July 2013.
