Vitan er pallurin - forvitni er drívmegin
I was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, and I got my PhD from the University of Copenhagen in 2004 with Søren Eilers as my advisor. I have been a professor of mathematics at the University of the Faroe Islands since June 2015.

Before that, I was first an associate professor (2008-2012) and since a full professor (2012-2015) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). I have also been a postdoc at Institut Mittag-Leffler (2004), NTNU (2004-2005), University of Münster (2005-2006), University of Newcastle, Australia (2006-2007), University of Wollongong (2007), and an assistant professor at the University of Southern Denmark (2008).

My area of research is the interplay between C*-algebras and symbolic dynamics.
