Biography

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style. - Maya Angelou

I am a computer science PhD student at the University of Vaasa. My research interests lie in computational mathematics and its application to engineering domains. Particularly, I have experience in computational algebraic geometry and polynomial solvers optimisation. Application domains I have experience with include computer vision and satellite positioning.

If you want to collaborate with me or simply fund my research, do not hesitate to contact me.
