About

I am a physicist from Bergen, Norway, with a PhD in Physics from the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. I hold a MSc degree (siv. ing.) in Applied Physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim (with an exchange stay at Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris). I work as a Researcher at PoreLab (Center of Excellence through the Research Council of Norway) and the The Njord Centre at the intersection between the Departments of Physics and Geoscience, at the University of Oslo.

My research revolves around modelling and numerical simulation of fluid flow in porous systems. Typical systems include fluid-saturated fractures and porous rock, but also has applications to microfluidic devices and biological systems. As a concrete example, my research may lead to an improved understanding of the physical aspects of carbon capture, transport and storage. My PhD thesis advisor was Prof. Joachim Mathiesen, and my PhD project was a part of the NanoHeal network. Before my PhD studies, I was a researcher in the Flow phenomena group at SINTEF Energy Research, Trondheim, and I have worked as a Research Scientist at SINTEF Digital in Oslo.
