Experience and background

I’m a sociologist with a PhD from the Norwegian University of Technology and Science. I’m project-leader of "New Trends in Mondern Policing", funded by the Norwegian Research Council. My sub-project is about police investigation of mobile organised crime grops. I also lead the PolReg research group. The purpose of the research group is to (further) develop the potential of using data from the police databases for research purposes.
