Background and activities
PhD in Geotechnical Engineering at NTNU 1994. Worked as research scientist at SINTEF Geotechnical Engineering from 1994 to 2005 with main focus on geotechnical design of offshore foundations. Worked as a consultant in offshore geotechnical engineering in Geopartner Marin as from 2005 to 2011. Appointed as Professor in Geotechnical Engineering at NTNU in 2012.
Are responsible for research activities on the topic of thefoundation of offshore wind turbines.
