Faculty of Science

I am a PhD student in the research group of Fractal Geometry. I obtained my MSc from the University of Oulu in 2019 and began my doctoral studies in the fall of the same year.

My research interests include dimension theory and arithmetic properties of self-similar and self-affine sets and measures, and applications of the scenery flow and ergodic theory into geometry of measures.
