I am a Professor of Classics at the University of Oslo. I have several areas of research interests mainly in Greek (but also in Latin) literature. My special interest is Greek epic poetry. Currently I am writing a commentary on Book 5 of Homer’s Odyssey (the Kalypso episode).

Please consult my webpage at the University of Oslo for more information about me, my research and my publications.

Please also visit the blog of my colleague Mathilde Skoie (in Norwegian).
