Currently I am a scholar at the The Oskar Klein Centre and the Department of Astronomy at Stockholm University. I spend a fair fraction of my time working on the Carnegie Supernova Project. I also collaborate with Supernova researchers in Europe, USA, Chile, and Japan. My research is focussed chiefly on the study of Type Ia and Type Ib/c supernovae with the main motivation to gain a deeper understanding of their progenitor systems and explosion physics, as well as to sharpen the use of Type Ia supernova as distance indicators. I am also an affiliated scientist at the Dark Cosmology Centre in lovely København Danmark.
