He who knows not and knows not he knows not: he is a fool - shun him. He who knows not and knows he knows not: he is simple - teach him. He who knows and knows not he knows: he is asleep - wake him. He who knows and knows he knows: he is wise - follow him.

I live and breathe economics and Internet. Main main area of research is dynamic aspects of health economics, which is a lot more fun than it sounds. I am motivated by a natural interest in how people make choices in health care. In my spare time i love to fiddle with high tech gadgets and fun geeky software. I also like to program, which is why i made this home page. When i am not caught up in a fun algorithm or an interesting work problem, i like to spend time with my family and friends.

Besides making cool stuff with computers, I like to both cook and eat food. I am especially proud of my Moroccan chicken with salted lemons and my home made rye bread.
