I completed my PhD in applied mathematics at the University of Bergen in 2002. Since 1/10-2018 I have been employed as a senior scientist in NORCE Energy. From 2006-2018 I was a senior scientist at IRIS, and before that a researcher at Rogaland research.
I have mainly worked with problems related to modeling of multi-phase fluid flow in wells and porous media (reservoirs), and in particular calibration of models using ensemble-based data assimilation. I have also worked on ensemble-based optimization, and have contributed to the development and applications of these methods. More recently, I have worked with applications involving large data sets (seismic) and large-scale models, as well as problems in medicine.
