Knut Lehre Seip


  1. I am professor in environmental Sciences and focuses on aquatic ecosystems and  climate change, in particula the role of oceanic currents on heat transport and global warming. I also work in macroeconomy and study how, when and why economic actors "play" as they do. Tax policy, inflation and interest rate setting by central banks are particular interest issues. 
  2. Often I use a method that is called the high resolution lead-lag (HRLL) method. It contribute to the understanding of cause and effects, and is particular useful when cause and effects change roles, which oceanic currents and economic actors often do.
  3. I also work with issues related to art: what are the emotions people express in the meeting with paintings and architecture?
