Research interests

My research interests are spatio-temporal statistics and computational statistics, often applied to the Earth sciences. I am heavily involved in research projects on: 

I am also taking part in the Havvarsel project working on ocenographic data assimilation and the ML4ITS project working on machine learning for irregular time series data. 

Along with methods for parameter estimation, prediction and data assimilation, I work on value of information analysis in this context of spatio-temporal applications. Here is our book on 'Value of Information in the Earth Sciences' (http://www.cambridge.org/9781107040267), published by Cambridge University Press. (Runner up publication award by the Decision analysis society at INFORMS, 2017.)

I am associate editor of 'Mathematical geosciences' and 'Statistics and computing'.

PhD students (statistics): Susan Anyosa, Mina Spremic, Yaolin Ge, Florian Beiser,

(external departments): Gunhild Berget

Former PhD students: Erlend Aune, Gabriele Martinelli, Javad Rezaie, Marie Lilleborge, Jacob Skauvold, Jacopo Paglia, Michael Gineste.

I have supervised 45 MSc students.

Study programs and education

I am active in the study program for Physics and Mathematics (https://www.ntnu.no/studier/mtfyma) at NTNU and member of the Industrial Mathematics board (https://www.ntnu.no/studier/mtfyma/industriell_matematikk).
