At UiA, there is a strong academic environment where several academic areas work together.
I work with information and communication technology at the Centre for Integrated Emergency Management (CIEM), with the goal of using technology to better the handling of catastrophes.
I was recently in Ghana to research how better technological solutions can help the Ebola crisis, work that is strongly supported by CIEM and UiA. The goal is to use our findings for academic research and hopefully find solutions to the challenges.
Here at UiA, there is a strong academic environment where several academic areas work together, and that was something I found very attractive when I accepted a job here one and a half year ago. I would also like to praise the good working environment and the pleasant co-workers in great surroundings in Southern Norway.
