Inga Berre's main research interests are mathematical modelling, partial differential equations and numerical methods, in particular motivated by simulation of coupled thermal-hydraulic-mechanical processes in fractured geothermal systems. Related to these topics, she currently leads the research projects ERiS funded by The Research Council of Norway (RCN) and she is also WP leader of the RCN Toppforsk project TheMSES. Berre chairs the Joint Program Geothermal, European Energy Research Alliance and she is co-chair of the SET-Plan Implementation Working Group on Deep Geothermal. She is member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences, secretary of the SIAM GS activity group and member of the Interpore Program Committee.
