I come from Gentofte (Denmark), grew up in the Faroe Islands, have studied mathematics and physics at Københavns Universitet (University of Copenhagen). I am presently living in Gentofte (Denmark), where I work as an independent researcher and software innovator and teach physics.
In the summer 1993 was I working at JET (Joint European Torus) in England. My task there was to build and test some electronics for a X-ray spectrometer for the reactor. In the winter 1994-95 I did some experiments for my MSC thesis at University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In the winter 1999-2000 I did some experiments for my PhD thesis at École Normale Superieure, Paris, France. From 2003 to 2006 I worked as a researcher in biomedical applications at CRS4 in Sardinia (Italy). From 2006 to 2008 I taught Software Engineering in Denmark. From 2008 to 2009 I worked as an analyst in a Danish investment bank.
Since I started studying, I have started a company, that solves computer related problems like programming, preparing documents for WWW and various other free-lance jobs.
I'm not really politically active, but that doesn't prevent me from having an opinion on a lot of questions. I do among other things think
I have a wide range of interests related to my study (physics). Here is a list of some of the projects and institutions I have connections to:
Since I happen to like sailing, I am quite often on research cruises around the Faroe Islands. I help a bit with the geological and geophysical archives of the museum.
GEUS, NIOZ and SOC are working on an EU-financed project about the continental slope. In the summer of 1995, I was on a cruise with R/V Pelagia north east of the Faroes, where I aomong other things helped getting data out of the ships data aquisition system.
The instrument we used on the 1995 cruise with R/V Pelagia was built by SOC.
I have been working on a method to improve the positioning of deep-towed side-scan sonars for the SOC processing software. (This project is on "stand-by" at the moment.)
NIOZ owns R/V Pelagia and participates in the project mentioned with GEUS.
From September 1999 to March 2000 I have worked at École Normale Supérieure on a project with measurements of passive scalar structure functions in fully developed turbulence. This work is done in the laboratory of Patrick Tabeling.
This is where I wrote my masters thesis.
An article based on some measurements on a fluid experiment we are working with at CATS. The work was done in cooperation with P. Alstrøm, M. T. Levinsen and W. I. Goldburg.
