FlowTrans Early Stage Researcher
Department of Physics and Geological Processes, University of Oslo
My FlowTrans research involves working on a compaction model for a chalk reservoir. During the early stage of oil production at the Ekofisk Field, Norwegian North Sea Territory, the chalk reservoir suffered a considerable pressure drop which triggered its compaction and the consequent subsidence of the sea floor. The compaction and the sea floor subsidence remained after initial pressure conditions were restored. Until now, several models of compaction have been created, none of which has a clear physical background.
The aim of my project is to create a chalk compaction model based on basic physical assumptions depending on independently measurable variables.
I have a Masters Degree in Geophysics (2012), a Bachelor Degree in Earth Sciences (2011) and a Bachelor Degree in Computer Sciences (2009). My research interests involve the analytical and numerical modelling of geological processes.
My hobbies include hiking, travelling, water sports, reading and photography.
