I am Professor in Health Technology at the Department of Computer Science, University of Tromsø. I am the principal investigator in the Health Data Lab.

My research goal is to build and experimentally evaluate infrastructure systems that support the methods under development by our bioinformatics collaborators. We are designing and implementing systems for big data management, reproducible analysis, machine learning, and data interpretation. We are primarily interested in improving the scalability and interactivity of bioinformatics analysis methods and frameworks.

For more information about my research see my publications, open source code, and experiment data.

A complete list of current postdocs, PhD students, master students, engineers in my lab, and former students is available here.

I am currently teaching inf-2201 Operating Systems in the spring semester and inf-2202 Concurrent and System Level Programming in the fall semester.

I am a co-founder of the Medsensio AS company that provide products for detection and classification of abnormal lung sounds, and the founder of Searas Bongo company that develops Sami language apps for children.
