About me

I am a pragmatic quantitive modeling expert. Currently I am modeling the COVID-19 pandemic in Denmark and researching new methods to describe and predict epidemiological outbreaks.

In addition to this, I have experience in computational neuroscience, modeling networks and neural signal processing, digital communication networks as well as financial derivatives and risk models.

My weapon of choice is R, but I occasionally work with c++, Python and SQL when called for.

I hold a MSc (2010) and PhD (2018) in Statistics from Aarhus University and the University of Copenhagen.
