Department of Economics
I am the Jacob Wallenberg professor of economics. My research focuses on imperfectly competitive markets (Industrial Organization) with an emphasis on investigating responses by firms to uncertainty and various risks, in particular exchange rate risk, see here for publications. My book "Managing Risk and Uncertainty" is especially close to my heart, more information on the book is available here.
I teach Microeconomics at the undergraduate level and Industrial Organization at the PhD level. I'm also adjunct professor at NHH Bergen.
