Oskar Henriksson, research assistant
Oskar Henriksson is employed at the department from 1 March 2021. He will be working with two of the department’s sections, both Algebra & Geometry and the section for Statistics and Probability Theory.
Oskar will be affiliated with the research group Mathematics of Reaction Networks (MBIO), where he will work on algebraic aspects of chemical reaction network theory, under the supervision of Elisenda Feliu and Beatriz Pascual Escudero.
Oskar is broadly interested in algebraically flavoured mathematics, both pure and applied. In particular, he is interested in combinatorial and computational aspects of algebraic geometry (e.g. Gröbner bases, toric varieties, homotopy continuation, and tropical geometry), as well as various applications within the natural sciences.
Oskar graduated from the Master's program in mathematics at the University of Copenhagen in January 2021, with a thesis about Khovanov homology supervised by Nathalie Wahl and Andrea Bianchi. Before coming to Copenhagen, he did his Bachelor's studies at Lund University, with Arne Meurman as his supervisor.
