I am a philosopher at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU). I lead CauseHealth together with Elena Rocca, which started as a 4 year research project, funded by the Research Council of Norway (FRIPRO NFR). We also got a spin-off, CauseHealth Risk and Safety, sponsored by WHO’s Uppsala Centre for International Drug Monitoring (UMC). Together we also lead the NMBU Centre for Applied Philosophy of Science (NMBU CAPS). We are also part of the international Philosophers for Sustainability initiative.
My expertise is on the philosophy of causation, but I also work on complexity, probability, risk and other philosophical biases in science and medicine that influence choice of theory, method, policy and practice. I use Twitter for professional networking and I love teaching.
I am interested in Responsible Research and Innovation and have served as member of the NMBU research ethics committee since 2014 and the National Commission for the Investigation of Research Misconduct (Granskningsutvalget) for the National Research Ethics Committees of Norway since 2017.
