I am an economics professor at BI Norwegian Business School. For the academic year 2018-2019, I live and work in Irvine, California, as a visiting researcher at Paul Merage School of Business, UC Irvine.

My current research interests are industrial organization and economics of strategy, pharmaceutical markets, and regulation of markets in general.

Here are some of my ongoing projects, all in preliminary phases:

  • Communication and corporate strategy implementation
  • Precision medicine and diagnostic testing
  • Effect of biosimilar competition – A Norwegian case.

I currently serve on the Board of Directors of Nye Veier AS – a state-owned company, given the responsibility of planning, building and maintaining major road infrastructure in Norway.

I served as provost at BI for 8 years (2010-2018). In this position, I had the overall academic responsibility of all degree programs, including pedagogical development and business school accreditations.
