Personal profile

Research

I have three primary research areas all relying on the mathematical theory from dynamical systems.

I study creation and interaction of rotating structures (vortices) in water and air (fluids). For example, as the wind hits a flag pole, vortices can be created in the wake. Therefore, a flag can flap even though the wind is steady.

As a plain takes off, vortices are created at the tip of the wings. These vortices are carrying significant forces and take time to die out. This is a reason why there has to be some lag time until the next take off.

My second research area is in close collaboration with chemists from Roskilde University. We are interested in understanding enzyme – substrate interactions. It is a ‘save the world’ project, as the substrates could be left over from the crops, so the overall interest is sustainable biofuel production.

Finally, I am heavily involved in mathematical modelling of blood cancers (leukemia, MPNs). This is in close collaboration with medical doctors and medical biologists from Roskilde Hospital.

Supervision

I am interested in mathematics and mathematical modelling in a broad sense.

 Education

I am shaped by Roskilde University as I graduated in 2009 in mathematics and physics.

I have therefore experienced ten projects on my own body and soul. In 2013 I received a PhD degree from DTU Mathematics. I then worked for a year in the engineering company DHI before I was fortunate to return to Roskilde University in 2015.
