Background and activities
Gisle Øye started as a research scientist at the Ugelstad Laboratory March 1st 2002 and was appointed Professor in 2009. His research interests are focused on colloid chemistry and interfacial phenomena within Produced Water Managament, Enhanced Oil Recovery and synthesis of nanostructured materials.
Dr. Øye received his doctoral degree at the University of Bergen in 1999. In the period 2000-2002 he worked with plasmachemical modification of porous polymers at the University of Durham (England).
