With a background from seismology and seismic hazard studies, my research interests cover geohazards in a broad sense, including also e.g. tsunami hazards and earthquake-induced landslides.

Current research activities include studies of:

  • Arctic seismicity and geohazards
  • Tsunami hazard and risk assessment
  • The effect of CO2 injection and storage on seismic hazard and risk
  • Earthquake-induced landslides in intraplate areas
  • Historical earthquakes

For media requests in connection with large earthquakes or other significiant geohazard events: mathilde.sorensen@uib.no or 46621089.

Science communication and opinion pieces (mostly in Norwegian):

Other outreach activities:

  • Regular media contact in connection with large earthquakes, including TV and radio interviews and interviews with a number of national, regional and local newspapers
  • Popular scientific presentations to various audiences (including school classes, Bergen Rotary Club and others)
  • “Undrelaboratoriet”: Four short videos about geophysics for 5.-6. grade students, available through nysgjerrigper.no (2021)
  • Panel discussion and introductory presentations in connection with viewings of the Norwegian disaster movie “Skjelvet” (“The Quake”) (2018)
  • Scientific responsible for developing a new exhibition on earthquakes and earthquake observation at Bergen Museum (2005)

Current teaching

I am a dedicated teacher, striving to spark motivation and engagement in my students. I am convinced that motivated and engaged students, exposed to student-active learning, are the best learners.

I lead the development of a national course on geohazards which is taught at the Universities of Bergen, Oslo and Tromsø since 2020. At UiB the course is taught under the course code: GEOV217 - Geohazards. The course builds on a course I launched at UiB in 2016, and has been developed in cooperation with more than 20 geohazards experts from around Norway.
