About me

I'm currently an assistant professor at BiRC, Aarhus University where I'm working with Mikkel Schierup and Anders Børglum, while continuing to collaborate with Alkes Price at the Harvard University. In 2011 I graduated from the University of Southern California with a PhD in Computational Biology, where I was a part of the Nordborg lab. I received a MSc in Bioinformatics and BSc in Computer Science and Math from the University of Copenhagen.  A long time ago, before I moved to Copenhagen, LA, Vienna, Boston, and Aarhus, I lived in Iceland, from where I originate. I am married to Dorte Pedersen and we have two children together, Anna Silja and Jonas Egill.  You can follow our everyday life on our blog.
