Background and activities

Morten Omholt Alver (1977) is Adjunct Associate Professor at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics. He belongs to the research group for Automation in fishery and aquaculture. He has a MSc and a PhD from the Department of Engineering Cybernetics, NTNU.

Key Qualifications

My main qualifications are within mathematical model development, ocean modelling, individual based energetic models, population models, instrumentation and automation in marine aquaculture, and programming/software development. I have experience with several established model systems within oceanography (SINMOD and ROMS) and meteorology (WRF), and have worked on development of modules within both SINMOD and ROMS for several years. Within the field of cage aquaculture I have worked on modelling of fish behavior, growth and feed distribution, as well as cooperating with the industry on developing automatic salmon lice detection systems.
