I am currently in the Mathematical Biology Group at the Metapopulation Research Centre.

I did my doctoral studies in the field of theoretical computer science. More precisely, I worked on theory of distributed computing in the Distributed Algorithms group in Aalto University. I have worked on self-stabilisation and Byzantine fault tolerance, local algorithms for graph problems, and algorithm synthesis. Prior to this, I have done some research related to species-area relationships.

For more information, see my publications (also on Google Scholar).
