About me
 I am an associate professor in automation engineering, IEEE Senior Member, and head of the Cyber-Physical Systems Lab at NTNU, Ålesund, Norway. At the Department of ICT and Natural Sciences I am an elected scientific staff member of the leader group, and from summer 2020 I head the bachelor programme in automation engineering. 

Teaching activities include engineering courses in our BSc Automation and MSc Simulation & Visualization programmes, and supervision of BSc, MSc, PhD, and postdoc projects. Additionally, I develop and offer courses for lifelong learning.

My research interests belong to the broad areas of cybernetics, artificial intelligence, neuroengineering, and education. As an affiliated scientist at NTNU AMOS (SFF), a Centre of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway, I am developing new methods for automated and autonomous systems at sea, such as path planning and collision avoidance algorithms for ASVs. I am also investigating biomechanical robotics and machine learning for MR image segmentation for modelling and simulation of human joints and tissue. My educational research revolves around student-active learning methodologies and digital tools for teaching, learning, and assessment. 

Other activities of mine involve being a topic editor for the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering, regular peer reviewer for journals and conferences, and scientific expert nationally and abroad, including NOKUT study program approval; evalution of academic positions, PhD candidates and MSc/BSc projects; and participation in conference boards and chair duties.
