I am a professor of signal processing and acoustical imaging at the University of Oslo and a member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences. Our group is part of "Centre for Innovative Ultrasound Solutions (CIUS)" - a centre for research-based innovation.

My main research interest is to understand complexity, more specifically to understand wave propagation in complex media like human tissue for medical ultrasound and elastography. A special focus is on understanding why this often results in power law characteristics (attenuation and dispersion), and to uncover the physical basis for non-integer (fractional) derivative descriptions of waves in these media. Combination of linear viscoelasticity and acoustic/elastic wave theories seems to be particularly useful.

Apart from that I probably have too many interestes. In addition to compressional and shear waves propagation, that includes indoor positioning with ultrasound, history and philosophy of science, data analysis for climate, audio/HiFi/audio coding, and ham radio.
