Background and activities

The professorship is connected to the Ship Design Chair at the Maritime Knowledge Hub, sponsored by Ulstein Group.

Currently program coordinator for the MSc in Ship Design and MSc in Product and Systems Design at IHB.

Active reserach and coordination activities on the FABLAB and Ship Design and Operations lab at NTNU in Ålesund.

Education consists of a PhD degree in Marine Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Marine Systems group (2012). Part of the PhD developed at the Systems Engineering Advancement Research Initiative (SEAri) at MIT, with complex system engineering methods applied to the maritime case (2010-2011). Visiting lecturer and research collaboration with the Marine Research Group at UCL (2016).

Previous experience as Senior Consultant at Det Norske Veritas (Norway, 2013).

Previous experience in Oil & Gas in Brazil, at the TPN Numerical Offshore Model Basin in Brazil (partnership with Petrobras, University of São Paulo and other research institutes in Brazil). Master in engineering (2yrs) and Diploma Engineering (5yrs) in Naval Architecture and Maritime Engineering at University of São Paulo, Brazil.
