I am a professor of acoustic imaging and signal processing at the University of Oslo and an elected 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 interest is to understand complexity, in the sense that cosmologist and astrophysicist Martin Rees expresses it:

We can expect huge advances on three frontiers: the very small, the very large, and the very complex 

More specifically I want to understand the physics of wave propagation in complex media like biological tissue in the context of medical ultrasound and elastography, and why this often results in power law frequency characteristics (attenuation and dispersion), and to uncover the physical basis for non-integer (fractional) derivative descriptions of waves - if indeed there is one.

From time to time I am on the panel of the popular national radio show NRK P2, "Tower of Abel" answering questions on acoustics in a wide sense and sometimes commenting on the history/philosophy of science. I have blogged since 2010, mainly in Norwegian, and some in English.

Apart from that I probably have too many interests. That includes history and philosophy of science, loudspeakers/audio coding, and amateur radio.

The publication list from the database Cristin is not always so useful as it seems to be unable to distinguish between publications from several persons with the same name as me. Therefore it may be better to use this list.
