About me

I am a physicist from Bergen, Norway. I hold a MSc degree (siv. ing.) in Technical physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim (with an exchange stay at Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris). I am on leave from a position as a researcher in the Flow phenomena group at SINTEF Energy Research, Trondheim.

I work on modelling and simulation of flow in and deformation of disordered materials, such as fluid-saturated fractures and porous rocks. The studies can, e.g., lead to an improved understanding of physical aspects of carbon capture, transport and storage. My PhD thesis advisor is Assoc. Prof. Joachim Mathiesen, and I am a part of the NanoHeal network.
