Before joining the Washington University faculty, I was an Academy Research Fellow at the University of Helsinki, where I led a research team of PhD students and postdocs. I received my PhD in 2012 from the University of Helsinki. My research concerns harmonic analysis with an emphasis on singular integral operators and dyadic-probabilistic methods. I also study geometric measure theory, especially rectifiability and its interactions with harmonic analysis and PDEs.

Outside of academia I enjoy computer science and its links to mathematics. I like to study cryptography, blockchains, cryptocurrencies and algorithms and can fluently program in Rust and Go. I like to cook and play badminton — I have also tried to learn golf, so far unsuccessfully.

I am married to Ida Martikainen. She is a management consultant and outplays me at the golf course.
