Background and activities

Competence/interests:

  • Major Accident Risk - I have become more and more interested in understanding how and why major accidents occur and is fascinated by different perspectives on major accidents, proposed by different scientific disciplines.
  • Monitoring accident risk - As part of the interest in major accidents, I am also trying to figure out ways of monitoring risk. Major accidents are (luckily!) very few and we need to find other ways of monitoring the risk than by counting accidents.
  • Risk Analysis/Risk Modelling - I have worked with risk analysis, very much from a practical viewpoint but also from a more theoretical viewpoint, my whole working life. This is an interest that still is very much alive, with main focus on major accidents.
  • Human and Organisational factors influence on risk - This is an area that I have become interested in over the last 5-10 years and forms and integral part of the focus on Major accident risk and risk analysis.

Courses

I am currently lecturing TPK5160 Risk Analysis during the autumn semester and a module in TPK4515 related to RAMS. Further, I am responsible for a PhD course PK8209 called Modelling and Analysis of Major Accidents. This is lectured in the autumn every second year (next autumn 2013). I am also responsible for a continuing education course PK6017 Risikoanalyse which is lectured in Norwegian
