Personal profile

Research information

Welcome to my Homepage!

I'm a resource economics who in most of my academic work has investigated the relationship between natural resources, the environment and the economy. In my work I apply both theory and data to answer what I hope and think is important questions from the real world. Currently, I work with Arctic marine resource management issues, technological change in renewable resource industries and renewable energy and economics of storage. I have been very lucky to have many very good co-authors and mentors.
