I obtained my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Leeds, UK. Before joining Gothenburg University I have held research and teaching positions at the University of Edinburgh (School of Informatics), University of Oxford (Department of Computer Science and Keble College) and Vienna University of Technology (Institute of Discrete Mathematics and Geometry).

I am Docent in Logic (equivalent of Associate Professor). Since January 2019, I am a MacGillavry Fellow at the University of Amsterdam. See also my UvA homepage.
