Marine geophysics. Mainly ocean bottom seismic on crustal scale in: mid-Norway, Barents Sea, Jan Mayen, spreading ridges in the N. Atlantic. Responsible for acquisition and modelling of data. The main aim with the research is to understand the evolution of the N. Atlantic and the interplay between plate tectonic and the Iceland hot-spot. The work is put into a global context.

Lectures parts of courses in seismic acquistion/processing (GEOV113) and plate tectonics (GEOV210).

Master theses in processing and processing of marine, multichannel seismic data, and modelling of ocean bottom seismic data on crustal scale.

Has been main supervisor for 40+ masterstudents, and 10 PhD students.

Professor

Most of the work is performed within the framework of NFR- and industrial projects, some with support from EU.

Most important current projects:

Modelling of OBS data acquired in 2019 near the Knipovich Ridge. In cooperation with Polish Academy of Sciences.

Scientific coordinator for GoNorth (Geosciences in the northern Arctic), a Norwegian program for geoscientific exploration of the Polar Ocean (under development).
