En populärvetenskaplig beskrivning på svenska kommer postas här, i sinom tid...
I am a member of the research group in Algebra and Geometry at Blekinge Institute of Technology .
In the past, I have been a member of the research groups in Noncommutative Geometry and Applications respectively Algebra, at Lund University (20122014),
the research group in Noncommutative Geometry
within the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation
at the University of
Copenhagen (20102012),
the research group in Noncommutative Geometry and Applications
at Lund University (20082010)
and the research group in
Algebra and Geometry at the University of Antwerp (20062008).
My favourite open problems
A common belief (amongst nonmathematicians) is that mathematics is a finished subject, that there is nothing more to explore.
However, the real situation is quite the opposite. There are plenty of important problems
that are open in the sense that noone has been able to solve them.
Here is a list of my favourite open problems/conjectures:
 Kaplansky's idempotent/zerodivisor/unit conjecture for group rings
 The KadisonKaplansky conjecture
 The BaumConnes conjecture
 The Goldbach conjecture
The KadisonSinger problem, Solved in 2013 by Marcus, Spielman and Srivastava!!!, arXiv:1306.3969 [math.CO]
 Köthe's conjecture
 The Riemann hypothesis
(Shortly, I will try to write out some more details about these problems.)
Students, collaborators, genealogy etc.
My coauthors include
My Erdös number is 4 and my Einstein number is 5 (take a look here!).
 I have been assistant supervisor for Johan
Richter , who was a PhD student at
Lund University.
Johan defended his licentiate thesis on October 5, 2012,
and his doctoral thesis on September 29, 2014.
His PhD thesis, entitled ''Algebraic Properties of Ore Extensions and Their Commutative Subrings'', can be found here.
 I have been a mentor for Sanaz Pooya , who is a PhD student at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran,
and who was visiting Lund University for 10 months (September 2013June 2014)
as a guest PhD student with an Erasmus Mundus (SALAM) scholarship.
 I have supervised Bartosz Malman , who presented his master's thesis,
entitled ''Zerodivisors and idempotents in group rings'',
on August 28, 2014.
The thesis can be downloaded from here.

I have been a mentor for Mai Hoang Bien , who was a postdoctoral researcher at Blekinge Institute of Technology during 10 months (January 2016October 2016).

I am a mentor for Stefan Wagner , who is a postdoctoral researcher at Blekinge Institute of Technology since June 2017.
 I am supervising Daniel Lännström , who is a PhD student
at Blekinge Institute of Technology.
Daniel defended his licentiate thesis, entitled
"The structure of epsilonstrongly graded rings with applications to Leavitt path algebras and CuntzPimsner rings",
on May 15, 2019.
It can be found here.
He has authored three
interesting research papers which you can find
here,
here,
and
here.
 I have been a mentor for Samaneh Baghdari , who is a PhD student at Isfahan University of Technology, Iran, and who was visiting Blekinge Institute of Technology for 6 months (September 2018February 2019) as a guest PhD student.
In the autumn of 2012, I participated in the Leavitt Path Algebra Seminar
at the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation, University of Copenhagen.
