I am a senior scientist in the Modeling and Simulation group where my main focus is the application of computational methods to understand and improve industrial processes.
I have a Ph.D. in computational chemistry from the University of Bergen and I have studied catalysts and molecules at an atomic scale. Nowadays, I work on much larger systems and I am engaged in the multiphysics simulations of various production processes at industrial scale. For example, I simulate the electrical conditions and process interactions in high temperature metallurgical reactors. The aim is to reduce the energy demands and environmental footprint of metal production.
I am also collaborating to the industrialization of biotechnological processes to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
