Background and activities

Ole Øiseth is a full professor in structural dynamics at the Department of Structural Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He is the head of the structural mechanics research group and the educational coordinator of the study program in civil and environmental engineering. The dynamics of structures subjected to environmental loading is his main research field. He has supervised more than 20 PhD candidates and 80 master students within these research fields since 2012.
