I am a post-doc researcher at Uppsala University.
I did my PhD with Tobias Wrigstad and
Dave Clarke. I do
research on programming languages, in particular type systems for
controlling aliasing and preventing data-races in concurrent and
From April to July 2018, I will be doing an internship at Microsoft
Research in Cambridge, working together with Matthew
on compiler based techniques for side-channel mitigation.
I am one of the main contributors
to Encore, a
highly concurrent object-oriented programming language. Encore’s
type system guarantees the absence of data-races and is based on
my work on Kappa .

At Uppsala University I have had the privilege of working in the same
group as the following PhD students:
I was the main teaching assistant for a second year 20 ECTS credits
course called Imperative and Object-Oriented Programming
Methodology, given by Tobias Wrigstad. In 2017, Tobias was voted
teacher of the year by the CS and IT students!
During 2016 and 2017 I shared the lectures of another 20 ECTS
credits course called Program Design and Data Structures.
During my undergraduate studies I worked as a TA and certified
Supplemental Instructions mentor for several courses on functional
programming and algorithms.
I am currently supervising the following bachelor thesis projects:
- Alexander Silferberg-Örtegren – Adding Support for Atomic Operations in Encore
- Tommy Vågbratt – Parasitic Objects
I have supervised the following bachelor thesis projects:
I spend a lot of my free time on listening to and creating music.
- From 2008 to 2017 I was the conductor of
Kalmar Nation’s Choir
is a video of us performing of Vienna Teng’s beautiful Hymn of Acxiom.
- Since 2015 I am a singer in
- I also like to write and arrange choir music.
is a recording of my setting of Alfred Tennyson’s Now Sleeps
the Crimson Petal, performed by the women’s choir
- I play the electric and upright
bass. Here is a
recording I made as a Christmas present for the friend who
introduced me to the wonderful music of Vulfpeck.
- I play bass in the now dormant band Morfis. Our album
from 2013 is on Spotify! I wrote and arranged the songs Gånglåt
från Gottsunda (“Walking Song from Gottsunda”), Cykeltjuven
(“The Bicycle Thief”) and Kometen (“The comet”).
