Background and activities

I am a mechanical engineer interested in operation and maintenance challenges in a number of industries. My educational background is within mechanical engineering and project management. I have worked for about 10 years in the Norwegian oil and gas industry with: operation and maintenance, expediting, QA/QC, design of piping systems, valve engineering and project management. In addition, I have 8 years experience from the Norwegian hydropower industry including operation and maintenance, mechanical engineering, project management, laboratory management and testing, handling of regulations and standards. I have been involved in research on hydropower and wind power for several years. Since 2013 I have been teaching piping design, operation and maintenance at NTNU. I enjoy sharing my practical experience with bachelor students and as a guest lecturer at NTNU and elsewhere. Online teaching and MOOC excites me. I believe that in the future learning will be less dependent on traditional classrooms and physical space. The internet and online meeting places is a learning arena that interests me a lot
