Background and activities

I am interested in the study and improvement of risk assessment and management in the broadest sense, from economic to organizational implications.

I have previously worked in internationally renowned research teams in United Kingdom (Health and Safety Laboratory), Norway (SINTEF), and Canada (Memorial University of Newfoundland).

I have been involved in a number of projects dealing with industrial and societal risks, such as:

  • EU FP7 projects
    • “DemoCLOCK” on demonstration of power production with CO2 capture;
    • “iNTeg-Risk” on early recognition, monitoring and integrated management of emerging, new technology related risks.
  • Projects financed by the Norwegian Research Council
    • “New Strains of Society: Hidden, Dynamic and Emergent Vulnerabilities”, on the development of an analytical framework to handle new societal threats;
    • “Petro-HRA” on the analysis of human actions as barriers in major accidents in the petroleum industry, co-financed by Statoil.

I am the Norwegian Delegate at the Working Party on Loss Prevention and Safety Promotion of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering.
