A short biography

I was born on June 20th, 1983 in Denmark. After growing up in the area surrounding Vejen, I moved to Aarhus in 2004 to pursue a university degree in mathematics. In 2010 I graduated with a M.Sc in Statistics and relocated to Copenhagen to take up a job as a quantitative analyst in Nordea (a large Scandinavian financial institution). After working 4 years as a quant in Risk Management, I decided to change my path and return to academia at the University of Copenhagen. Since 2015, I have been affiliated with the Department of Mathematics at UCPH, where I am now a part of the Dynamical Systems Interdisciplinary Network, designing a statistical model, that can describe how braincells are communicating.

Besides  scribling mathematical puzzles on paper and programming, I like to be active in various areas. I like to travel the world near and far, with my fiancĂ© Laila. We have had numerours adventures together, trekking, biking, diving and sailing. I am also very keen on playing music and I play guitar, drums and piano with great enthusiasm. On the more passive side, I like to watch a good film noir, read a classic, or simply just float around the internet learning all sorts of peculiar new things and skills. I have a curious mind, and thus often engage myself in new challenges.
