Some Background

I have been working with risk and decision analysis, i.e. development of products and methodologies within these areas, for several years and in various industrial and public sectors, e.g., risk-cost modeling and analyses from the telecom sector and national insurance policies for catastrophe events. I have also worked with logic verification of complex industrial systems for some years, inter alia at Swedish nuclear power plants.

Another interest is development cooperation and I have been involved in this for quite a while for, inter alia, EU, World Bank, Sida, WHO and Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in a multitude of countries, including technical infrastructure development, IT policies and organisational development as well as human resources.
