Background and activities
In my thesis work I use electron density functional theory (DFT) to study the functional properties of nanoscale oxide thin films. The goal is to develop new ways to control and enhance these properties so that they can be utilized for device applications in the post-silicon world of electronics. My main supervisor is Thomas Tybell, and my Co-supervisor is Sverre M. Selbach.
In addition, I enjoy disseminating science and I have among this others contributed Norwegian national television, NRK. This was done in a mini series about different physical units along with Ida Marie Høiaas, which aired on the shows "Newton" and "Schrödingers Katt".
