FlowTrans Principal Investigator
Associate Professor, Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen
I am Associate Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute and have a PhD degree in theoretical physics. I have previously been a postdoc at the Weizmann Institute in Israel and at NTNU in Norway and I was for a period professor at University of Olso in the Norwegien Centre of Excellence “Physics of Geological Processes”.
The FlowTrans objective is material deformation by advection or diffusion of an internal scalar variable, such as a reactant concentration or temperature that couples to the mechanical strength of a material. The project will focus on analytical models and/or the development of numerical methods
My research interests are in complex systems including fluid flow, solid mechanics and complex networks. I usually find many pattern forming processes in nature intriguing and have lately been working on columnar joints, stylolites, viscous fingers etc. At the Niels Bohr Institute, I give lectures in continuum mechanics and mathematics for physicists.
