### About me

Ciao! You have reached the homepage of Vesa Kaarnioja. I completed my doctorate in mathematics at Aalto University in August 2017. I am currently working as a Substitute Professor of Numerical Mathematics at University of Potsdam. I am also an Adjunct Associate Lecturer at University of New South Wales.

I have previously worked as a postdoc with the Numerical Analysis of Stochastic and Deterministic Partial Differential Equations group at Free University of Berlin (2022-2024), Uncertainty Quantification and Inverse Problems group at LUT University (2020-2022), Computational Mathematics group at University of New South Wales (2018-2020), Applied Mathematics and Mechanics group at Aalto University (fall 2018), and with the Inverse Problems group at University of Helsinki (2017-2018).

I am a member of FIPS.

My research interests include high-dimensional integration and interpolation using sparse grids and quasi-Monte Carlo methods, inverse problems, semilattices, and number theory (especially arithmetic functions!).
