Short presentation

My research interests belong to ergodic theory, metric geometry, heat kernels, spectral graph theory, analytic number theory, group theory, and their applications to other branches of mathematics and sciences, such as complex analysis, mathematical physics, and deep learning.

Born and raised in Haninge outside of Stockholm, Anders Karlsson studied Engineering Physics at KTH, 1991-1994 and was awarded a Honnörsstipendium and the Gunnar Wallquist studiemedalj upon graduation. With the generous support of the Göran Gustafsson Foundation, the Fulbright Commission, the Sweden-America Foundation, the Foundation Blanceflor, he could then start studies in mathematics at Yale University, eventually under the guidance of G.A. Margulis. Karlsson was awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Dissertation Fellowship in 1999 and received a Ph.D in mathematics from Yale in the year 2000.

After postdoctoral years at the ETH, Neuchâtel, Bielefeld, KTH, Yale, he became a research fellow of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (KVA) based at KTH for a few years. In 2010 he started a position as Associate Professor at University of Geneva that he still holds, and he has been Professor at Uppsala University since 2013 (part-time). Karlsson received the Wallenberg Prize of the Swedish Mathematical Society in 2008, the Edlund Prize from KVA in 2015 and the Gårding Prize from The Royal Physiographic Society of Lund in 2017.
