Mathematical stimulated modelling engineer


I'm an analyst at Banedanmark working with statistic cross-sectional analysis. My education is applied mathematics and computer science at the Technical University of Denmark. My research interests are quite broad. A considerable part of my research has focussed on the optimal decisions based on uncertainties, e.g. optimised energy bending in the Möbius strip, uncertain investments in the financial sectors and myopic vs. life-history behavioural decision-making among pelagic fish.

I have graduated with a B.Sc. thesis in differential geometry and with a M.Sc. thesis in theoretical ecology, both from the Technical University of Denmark. This has given me a unique combination of extremely strong quantitative skills in both classical and modern mathematics. This enables me to use sophisticated mathematics to develop a complex software solution using to make realistic models which can solve the above mentioned problems. I like to put my analytical skills and systematic thinking into my work. I greatly emphasise overview and stability in my work. I have a dream of working in a professionally creative and good research environment with an opportunity to achieve a professional development and to get competent feedback.

How did I get into my field of research?

I have always been interested in mathematics since I was a child. At that time it was the only thing I wanted: to have a job that had something to do with mathematics. My field within "Mathematics and Technology" at Technical University of Denmark therefore perfectly reflects my choice because I was then able to use my education in a wide number of mathematical courses. A course I found especially interesting was "Introduction to mathematical biology". This led to my master project where I studied the marine ecology with an eye to the mathematical modelling of the fish migration. My interest has since then broadened to include all animal migrations.

One of the goals I have set is to build a credible model which can forecast all different types of animal migrations - a bit like weather forecasting, but just with animal movements: a model which can predict (based on calculations) where the animals will move in the course of, say, a week or what will happen to the animals in the next 50 years, for example with calculations based on the fact that the global temperature will rise even more.


Since I have a hearing loss I use educated Sign Language interpreters during telephone calls, meetings, courses and conferences. They can translate directly between Danish Sign Language, English and Danish. I have the opportunity to apply to the job centre for a maximum of 20 hours of interpreting service per week if I have 37 working hours per week. That means that the job centre will bear the costs of this.
