I hold a Dr.ing degree in heterogeneous catalysis from Industriell Kjemi, NTH 1993.
I have worked as a researcher and advisor in oil refining for 30 years, first 10 years at SINTEF and then 19 years at the Statoil (now Equinor) research center. From this I have knowledge of crude oil qualities and upgrading and refining technologies, and how to run laboratory pilot plants (and problem solving and safety aspects related to that).
From 2017 to 2018, I was a content developer at Toolbox Systems (EngineeringToolBox.com).
In the autumn of 2018 I returned to NTNU and the Department of Chemical Engineering as senior engineer in the Catalysis Group and was for a year and a half responsible for support and facilitation of the laboratory activities there, as well as responsible for IKP's gas storage until the summer of 2021.
Since 2019, I have been a senior advisor and worked as a SFI coordinator in the iCSI (industrial Catalytic Science and Innovation) Centre, as well as coordinator for the INTPART-project CATHEX (Advances in heterogeneous catalysis through integrated theoretical and experimental efforts) at Department of Chemical Engineering. The latter connects the iCSI Center with 4 world-leading catalytic environments: University of Cape Town, East China University of Science and Technology, University of Toronto and University of Wisconsin-Madison. The CATHEX project offers support for travel and accommodation in connection with exchanges to the partner universities. I can be contacted if you want to know more about this.
