Jesper Levring Andersen
Head of Administration, Associate Professor
1958 Frederiksberg C
I got a MSc in Economics from the University of Copenhagen in 1996, and was employed as a research assistant in 1998. I obtained the PhD degree in 2005, and is currently associate professor combined with being head of administration. I primarily undertake consultancy work for the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark in relation to fisheries, but do also with a minor role participate in research projects.
Primary fields of research
My primary research interests are within bioeconomic modelling, productivity and efficiency analysis of the fishing vessels and issues of fisheries management. I have been involved in data collection issues within fisheries and how the available data can be applied to research and public sector consultancy. Furthermore, I have been involved in a range of EU and nationally funded research projects.
Lately, I have been working on analysing the potential economic consequences for Danish fishermen following BREXIT. Also, I have analysed the expected economic situation for Danish fishermen in the Baltic Sea following the reduced quota levels in 2020. Another topic, which I have investigated lately is issues and consequences of quota concentration in Danish fisheries.
Years back, I have tought the Master course Natural Resource Economics. In relation to this, I have taken the Teaching and Learning in Higher Education Programme. Due to my administrative role at the department, I have not tought lately.
Possible conflicts of interest
Through my career, I have obtained funding from an array of funds, including EU framework funds, Danish fisheries funds, the Ministry of Environment and Agriculture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to mention the latest ones.
