Welcome to my website.
I am a førsteamanuensis (associate professor) at the Department of Computer Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Gjøvik, Norway, and teach in the area of cloud computing and mobile technologies, with emphasis on application development. My specific research interests involve the modelling, analysis and emergence processes associated with institutions, operating at the intersection of computer science and social sciences. A recent focus lies on developing institutional representations using blockchain infrastructure.
Prior to my current role I had been lecturing at the Otago Polytechnic in the area of systems development and operations (operating systems, system administration, virtualisation), after having finished my PhD in the area of Agent-based Modelling (at the Department of Information Science, University of Otago, New Zealand).
This site offers an overview of my research interests, developed concepts, and associated publications (see menu at the top of this page). Over time, I will put some more of my software projects online, some of which may be of use to computational social scientists, as well as earlier work in the area of agent-oriented software engineering.
If not working you can find me running, making music or – if temperature permits – diving.
