Efterår 2013:

Første Studieår ved Det Teknisk-Naturvidenskabelige og Det Sundhedsvidenskabelige Fakultet - Lineær Algebra - Hold 1.

Forår 2012:

School of Engineering and Science - Byggeri og Anlæg, Maskin og Produktion, Calculus - Hold 2.

Before 2012:

While finishing my master, I have been tutor at the first year for engineers and mathematicians in the courses Calculus, Discrete Mathematics, Linear Algebra, repetition course in Mathematics and a general brush-up course in mathematics for starting engineers. Furthermore I have been tutor in a course in Fourier series, solving diff. equations with Laplace transform and complex analysis for 2nd year engineers.

In the fall of 2011 I have been tutor again in Fourier series, Laplace transform and complex analysis for engineers, I have also been supervisor for two project groups for 3rd semester mathematics' students with the subject optimization.

Non-academic life

I have a daughter with my girlfriend Sanne, and in my spare time I play guitar.
