I am also research leader for Mathematics and Applied Mathematics research environment MAM.

I obtained a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree in Mathematics at Umeå University in 1996 under supervision of Professor Hans Wallin with the PhD thesis on the relationship between the dynamical and iterated function systems and non-commutative families of bounded and unbounded operators in Hilbert spaces with various commutation properties. After two years at the Royal Institute of Technology as junior researcher and then two years as a STINT postdoctoral fellow in USA, I have returned to Sweden as senior lecturer in Mathematics at Engineering Faculty (LTH), Lund University in 2000. Soon after in 2002, I became Docent at Lund University, Engineering Faculty (LTH), Lund University. Since May 2011, I am employed at a position of Full Professor at Mälardalen University in Västerås, Sweden. During 2012-2015, I have served as the subject representative (Ämnesföreträdare in Swedish) for the subject and research education subject Mathematics/Applied Mathematics at Mälardalen University. Since 2014, I have duties as the research scientific leader for the research environment Mathematics and Applied Mathematics (MAM) at Mälardalen University.

From 1996, I have supervised 23 post-graduate (PhD) students at the research level to either a PhD degree (18) or to Swedish Licentiate degree (3) (post-graduate level degree equivalent to half PhD) including 20 graduate students to PhD in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics (Umeå University 1, Lund University 5, Mälardalen University 13, University of Nairobi, Kenya, 1), 2 graduate students to Swedish Licentiate degree in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics at Mälardalen University and Uppsala University, and 1 graduate student to Swedish Licentiate degree in Mathematical Physics at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. I am a member of Editorial Boards of several international journals in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, Physics and Engineering.
