Jonas Tölle is a mathematician with research topics ranging from nonlinear functional and variational analysis, stochastic analysis and theory and applications of stochastic partial differential equations. Currently (in 2022), he has a position as a University Lecturer (yliopistonlehtori) for Mathematics and Statistics at the Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis at the Aalto University, Finland. He is also a Docent (dosentti) in mathematics at the University of Helsinki. He has also worked as a part-time photographer/photojournalist.
