Welcome to my home page. If you are interested in what I do, have a look around. I am an associate professor of computer science at the University of Oslo in Norway and a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley, California and ICERM at Brown University.
I enjoy giving inspiring and entertaining talks within a wide variety of topics, ranging from mathematics and computer science to philosophy and art, where I try to challenge the audience to question their perspectives and think differently.
Read about my book Logical Methods: The Art of Thinking Abstractly and Mathematically and other books I have contributed to!
From time to time I appear in the news. Here is an overview of the various press and media I have appeared in.
My academic interests are mainly logical calculi, proof theory, mathematical logic, complexity theory, cellular automata, combinatorics, and the philosophy of mathematics, but I am also interested in algorithmic art, graphics, and visualizations.
Sketches, experiments, and art. I enjoy making things that both have mathematical content and that are satisfying to watch.
I love teaching, and I mainly teach mathematics and computer science at the University of Oslo in Norway, with an emphasis on the course Logical Methods.
Sometimes I write about stuff and things. Read more here!
