Section: 2- Statistics and Biostatistics
In June 2017, I obtained my masters degree at UiO in programme Finance, Insurance and Risk. I started my studies with the main focus on subjects within finance and insurance. Later on, throughout the course of my studies, I decided to earn more general statistical knowledge. This led me to my master project within fraud detection, supervised by Ingrid Hobæk Haff.
From September 2017, I start with a PhD in statistics, where the main focus lies on fraud detection. The PhD project is part of a bigger research project called personalized fraud detection conducted by consortium BigInsight. Main areas of interest are insurance fraud, tax and social security fraud and money laundering.
Apart from studies, I was able to gain invaluable experience by working for two leading insurance companies in Nordics and Norway's largest power producer. I devote most of my free time to mountain biking, hiking and travelling around the world.
