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 am currently a postdoc at The Njord Centre, at the intersection between the Departments of Physics and Geoscience, at the University of Oslo. The fellowship is funded jointly by Equinor through the Akademia project (Modiflow) and by the PoreLab Center of Excellence through the Research Council of Norway. 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.

My research revolves around modelling and numerical simulation of fluid flow in and deformation of disordered multiphase systems. Such systems typically arise in 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.
