Research in progress


Work experience

I am currently involved in research and teaching at the Department of Safety, Economics, and Planning at the University of Stavanger. My teaching focuses primarily on cost-effective and proportionate counterterrorism measures in urban areas.

Over previous years I have undertaken research for nongovernmental organisations in the UK which primarily focus on arms control and the use of force in the pursuit of transparency, accountability and for raising awareness. Additionally, I have undertaken research for a major electronics company, assisting in devising strategy and resource allocation.
