NOTE

My job involves both research and teaching. At Department of Mathematical Sciences and Technology my teaching obligations are mainly related to the study programs in physics (Bachelor and Master) at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences .

RESEARCH


Biological neural networks

My present research activity is in computational neuroscience and neuroinformatics where we have a cross-disciplinary research group at UMB. We are interested in various problems related to the function of nerve cells and networks of nerve cells. More specifically we presently work on:

  • interpretation of electrical potentials measured extracellularly in the brain,
  • neuron and network models of sensory processing (vision, whisking),
  • network models for populations of nerve cells in cortex,
  • interaction between nerve cells and glia cells,
  • development of simulation tools.

Semiconductor physics

Before entering my new field, my research activity was within theoretical semiconductor physics. My latest projects were on

  • electron tunneling through metal-semiconductor interfaces [ abstract] (in collaboration with scientists at University of California, San Diego)
  • optical properties of semiconductor quantum dots [abstracts 1 and 2], (in collaboration with scientists at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway)
  • choice of boundary conditions at heterostructure interfaces [abstracts 1, 2, and 3]
  • quantum Hall effect in anisotropic systems [ abstract] (in collaboration with Carsten Lutken at University of Oslo)
  • development of new semiconductor devices [abstracts 1 and 2] (in collaboration with scientists at University of California, San Diego)
