I recently became a researcher at the Department of Mathematics in Bergen, working with the project GeoProCo. This project is supported by the Trond Mohn Foundation, and looks at how the mathematics of shapes, known as geometry, can be applied to other sciences. The main application of this project is towards probability theory; to understand solutions of equations with random elements without solving them using geometry. We also apply geometry to find better methods for computers to work with non-linear restrictions. Click here to read more.

I did my Ph.D. in Bergen in 2012, and I have been back in my hometown ever since 2019, after spending time as a post-doc in Luxembourg and Paris. My research has focused on geometry and its interaction with probability theory, and how we can get information about non-random things by seeing them as the expected value of something random. Since my return to Bergen, I have also focused more on computational mathematics. See my homepage for more details.
