Welcome to my publications website, where you will find links to my published books, papers, op-eds, some of my talks, and media coverage. I research, write, and publish at the intersection of economics, finance, energy, geopolitics, and climate or environmental issues.

Aside from books and papers, I publish op-eds as often as I can on subjects that interest me, in media outlets such as the Financial Times, Project Syndicate, Foreign Affairs, Le Monde, Prospect, Huffington Post, the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF), Capital Finance International, and the Norwegian national newspapers Aftenposten, Dagens Næringsliv, and Morgenbladet. My work has been covered by Bloomberg, the FT Sustainable Views, S&P Global, and Environmental Finance, among others.

Two of my books have been published in several languages, and my first book for the World Bank has been purchased or downloaded more than sixty thousand times. My second book was published with comments by several leading development economists. Many of my publications are joint with experts highly reputed in their fields, to whom I am forever grateful for their collaboration.

Although by no means a gifted photographer, I enjoy taking pictures of nature. The photos on this website are from my travels, bike rides, and runs.
