Background and activities
Fields of Expertise:
Engineering design in practice and engineering design methodology
Lean Product Development
Development of Product programs
Automotive light weight design
Innovative Technologies in Food Industries
My research interests at the time being are engineering design methodology with a focus on:
I have received my PhD from Trondheim, NTH - The Norwegian Institute of Technology. After a period as research scientist at SINTEF (The Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research at the Norwegian Institute of Technology), I was appointed as associate professor of Enginering Design at NTNU, first at the dep. of Product Design, later at the dep. of Product Development and Materials - IPM. Head of department at IPM from 2002 to 2005. Now I'm at the dep. of mechanical engineering and logistics.
