Klas Modin

Associate Professor, Mathematical Sciences

Klas Modin has a broad research interest, stretching from infinite-dimensional geometry, geometric hydrodynamics, and shape analysis, to computational mathematics, deep learning, and medical imaging. For his work he recieved an "Ingvar Carlsson Award" from SSF in 2013, a "Marie Sklodovska-Curie Individual Fellowship" from the European Commision (Horizon 2020) in 2015, and a "Starting Grant" from the Swedish Research Council in 2017. In 2019 he was selected "Wallenberg Academy Fellow" by the Royal Academy of Sciences.

Modin is currently supervising PhD student Milo Viviani on a project where geometric quantization is used for spatial discretization of diffeomorphisms.; here are some videos where these techniques are used for geophysical hydrodynamics. I addition, he collaborates on various research projects with:
