Personal Info

I'm a PhD student at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Liverpool.
I'm a member of the Automata, Computability and Complexity Theory Group.
My supervisors are Dr Igor Potapov, Dr Vesa Halava, and Prof. Paul Spirakis.

My research interests are decidability questions in different computational models. Mostly focusing on decidability and complexity in different vector addition games, matrix problems and semi-Thue systems.

Before starting my PhD, I received BSc and MSc degrees in Mathematics from University of Turku, Finland.
