Hello! I'm an Associate Professor at the University of Helsinki working with the Computational Field Theory group. I also hold the position of Academy Research Fellow through the Helsinki Institute of Physics. My Helsinki university information page has more information.

I am principally interested in numerical approaches to studying field theories including lattice quantum field theory, real-time simulations and matrix product states. Most of the time, I am thinking of applications to phase transitions in the early universe, but I am also interested in other things, such as condensed matter systems.

I'm also chair of FinDiP - Diversity in Physics, Finland. This is a working group of the Finnish Physical Society.

I was previously a member of Helsinki's Department of Physics Wellbeing Group. You can still contact me for advice and guidance on issues related to workplace wellbeing, and I am always looking for new ways to make our university a better, kinder place to work.

You can find a copy of my CV and publications [PDF].

I also have a page summarising my publicly available code repos.
