Professor of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence in the Department of Computer and Information Science (IDI), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
Vice Head for Research at the Department. Member of the Intelligent Systems Group (AI).

Senior Advisor Research in the company Verdande Technology AS (formerly Volve AS), a spin-off company from my AI group.
Scientific Advisor at SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture.

My main research area is artificial intelligence methods for decision-support systems, with a focus on interactive problem solving and experiential learning in knowledge-based systems. The emphasis is on representing and utilizing knowledge that captures the semantics and pragmatics of real-world problem solving settings. Special fields of interest, and topics for students, are case-based reasoning, knowledge level architectures, ontologies, knowledge modeling/representation, combined reasoning methods, and AI-related aspects of cognitive science and philosophy. Type of applications focused are in intelligent decision support, knowledge discovery from data, computer-assisted learning/tutoring, and knowledge management. Particular application areas are oil well drilling, medical decision making, and fish farming.
