Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University. We offer a wide range of education programmes and conduct research in most mathematical branches.

The Department of Mathematics would like to welcome two new members.

Josefin Ahlkrona & Sofia Tirabassi

Josefin Ahlkrona

Sofia Tirabassi

Josefin received her PhD from Uppsala University in 2016, where she studied with Per Lötstedt. She joins the Department as associate senior lecturer following a stint as a researcher at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel. Josefin's research interests are in computational geosciences, and in particular in climate modelling. Sofia obtained her PhD in 2012 from Universita degli Studi de Roma Tre, where she was advised by Giuseppe Pareschi. Following postdoctoral appointments in Warsaw and at the University of Utah, she spent several years as senior lecturer at Bergen University. Sofia works in algebraic and arithmetic geometry.

Dan has been awarded the prize for his outstanding contributions to algebraic geometry, and in particular for his results concerning homological stability and cohomology of moduli spaces of curves. He has also discovered a counterexample to Faber's conjecture on tautological rings.
