PhD-student doing mathematical modelling - +45 23220212 - rasmuspedersen1992@gmail.com

Welcome to my personal website. Here you will find my Curriculum Vitae as well as links to some of my other stuff.

I recently handed in my Ph.d.-thesis and am currently awaiting a date for the Ph.D.-defense.

My Ph.D.-research was part of the Cancitis Research Group at Roskilde University. Read more about our work on dirac.ruc.dk/cancitis.
