I am member of the Porous Media Research Group. My main research interests are mathematical modelling, partial differential equations and numerical methods, in particular motivated by simulation of flow, transport and geo-mechanical processes in geothermal systems. Related to these topics, I currently lead the research projects ERiS and GeoStim funded by The Research Council of Norway (RCN) and the research project FracZone funded by VISTA. I am also WP leader of the RCN Toppforsk project TheMSES. Recently, I was elected member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences.

In addition to research, I enjoy teaching, and I have taught a number of courses at the University of Bergen (see list below). I advise various master projects within computational mathematics. For current and past students, and their thesis title, see list below. I am sometimes asked about where you can work after completing your master in applied and computational mathematics. My master students have, among other, started working for companies like GexCon, Sweco, Statoil, GassCo, Multicontrol, Aker Solutions, and Archer. Several have continued with a PhD in Bergen or at international universities, or they have started (some after their PhD) working in research institutes like CMR, IRIS and NORSAR.
