Professor in Advanced Materials and Complex Systems, Department of Physics, University of Oslo
I am the Principal Investigator for the FlowTrans ITN Research at Offshore Resource Group Engineering (ORG) and will be supervisor for the Experienced Researcher.
Our FlowTrans research will focus on inversion of electro-magnetic data from electromagnetic prospecting, and the effects of polarisation
My current activities are research leadership, teaching and communication.
My research and teaching are mainly focused on petroleum related problems of physics/geophysics, in particular granular flows, two phase flow in porous media and hydrodynamics. The research is based on computer simulations and theory in collaboration with experimentalists. I teach one course on computer simulations in physics and one on statistical mechanics and hydrodynamics.
