Research interests

Mathematical finance,
with focus on insurance and markets for energy (electricity), weather and
commodities. Questions around pricing of options, hedging and optimal
portfolios are studied via stochastic analysis.)

Higher education and employment history

Dr. scient(phd equivalent) in mathematics from UNiversity of Oslo in 1995. 3 years
as researcher in statistics at the Norwegian Computing Center, and 2 years
as post doc in mathematics (1 year at the universities of Aarhus and
Oslo). Worked one year as associate professor at the University of
Trondheim, Norway, before coming full professor in mathematical finance at
the University of Oslo in 2002.


Deputy manager at the Center of Mathematics for Applications (CMA)
