Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I am currently interested in supervising PhD projects in all areas that are associated with mathematical modelling, data science and applied machine learning which directly or indirectly achieve sustainable development goals of the United Nations and others. More specific applications include public health and well-being, climate action, aquaculture, life on land, sustainable cities, agriculture and more.
