Arne graduated from the University of Bergen in 2000. He obtained an MSc from the University of Edinburgh in 2001 and completed his PhD at the University of St Andrews in 2005.
He worked for 4 years as a researcher at the University of York´s Centre for Health Economics, before joining the University of Sheffield in 2009 as a Lecturer in Economics. He became a Senior Lecturer in 2012 and was promoted to Reader in Economics in 2015 and Professor in 2018.
Arne is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Choice Modelling. He is affiliated with the Health, Econometrics and Data Group at the University of York and the International Research Collaborative for Health Economic Experiments.
- Research interests
Arne´s research interests lie in the areas of applied microeconometrics and health economics. He has a particular interest in stated preference methods and the econometric analysis of discrete choice data.
He also has an interest in statistical programming and has written several modules for the statistical software package Stata. He has been in involved in research projects funded by the UK Medical Research Council and the Research Council of Norway, among others.
Arne is interested in supervising PhD students in applied microeconometrics.
