Background and activities
I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering working in the research group Inorganic Materials and Ceramics.
I have a Master's degree within Industrial Chemistry and Biotechnology with a specialization in material science. During my theis work I studiet the ferroelectric material strontium barium niobate (SrxBa1-xNb2O6), and how dielectric properties dependend on thermal history.
Now I work on a project with the overall goal to increase the productivity and reduce the energy consumption related primary production of aluminium. The project is a collaboration between the research partners NTNU and SINTEF, and the industry partners Alcoa Norway, Hydro, Elkem Carbon og Skamol. It is also partly funded by the Research Council of Norway. My task within this project is to study refractory materials used in carbon anode firing kilns, and how/why these materials degrade during use.
