Biografi

Development economist and economic historian at the Department of Economics, working at campus Stavanger.

My current research interests are in four main areas. First, natural resources and technological development. The central aim of the research is to identify when natural resources boost and when they retard a country’s technological development.

Second, industry studies on the economics of the palm oil sector. Palm oil, though controversial, is a cash crop that has been responsible for lifting many out of poverty. Palm oil serves as a case study of how a developing country can use its natural resources to achieve not only reduced poverty but also increased agro-based manufacturing.

Third, industry studies on the Norwegian petroleum sector. The Norwegian petroleum sector has undoubtedly benefited Norway economically. My research aims to understand the sector’s influence in lesser-explored areas relating to market concentration of the petroleum sector.

Finally, historical national accounts in Scandinavia. Based on collaboration with other economic historians, my research looks at the development of living standards and its measurement stretching from the 18th to the 21st century. One research project, together with the Norwegian School of Economics, is an attempt to construct GDP figures for the 18th century.
