I was a PhD student with Coding and Information Transmission group at the University of Tartu under supervision of Vitaly Skachek. From January 2019, I am with Simula UiB.


Research interests
  • LDPC codes
  • Stopping distance and stopping redundancy of linear codes
  • Iterative and hybrid decoding of LDPC codes
  • Iterative algorithms for compressed sensing
  • Counter braids


The best maintained are my Google Scholar profile and dblp page. Although it goes without saying that I don't have almost any control over these resources.


  • MTAT.05.082 Introduction to Coding Theory
  • MTAT.05.125 Introduction to Theoretical Computer Science
