My main clinical and research interests are brain tumors and neurotraumatology. I am involved in several translational and clinical research projects on benign and malignant brain tumors, as well as clinical neurotrauma research. I was editor-in-chief of the book "Management of severe traumatic brain injury" (Springer, 1st ed. 2012 & 2nd ed. 2020).

My main collaborators at the University of Bergen are Frits Thorsen, Lars Prestegarden, Morten Lund-Johansen and Rolf Bjerkvig (www.kgjebsen-btrc.no).

I am a member of the National Center for Treatment of Vestibular Schwannomas (www.helse-bergen.no/avdelinger/nevroklinikken/nevrokirurgisk-avdeling)

I also have a close cooperation with fellow members of the Scandinavian Neurotrauma Committee (www.neurotrauma.nu).
