Erfaring og bakgrunn

I am a criminologist focusing on spatial crime analysis and predictive policing. In my Ph.D project, I visualize and analyze the geographical crime distribution in Oslo, with a focus on the spatial concentration level and the temporal stability of these patterns. Additionally, the predictive performance of different place-based crime forecasting models are evaluated. I am also currently working as a lecturer in quantitative methods at the University of Oslo.
