Background and activities
I have a PhD in physics from NTNU, where I worked with numerical simulations of light scattering from rough surfaces. After completing my PhD in 2013, I started at SINTEF, where I work with numerical models for transport of pollutants in the ocean. I'm mainly interested in numerical integration schemes fro ODEs and SDEs, and the use of Monte Carlo methods for environmental risk assessment. I have a secondary position at the Department of Physics, and my time here is spent on supervision of MSc students, research, and occasionally I lecture a course.
