I am currently part of the "digital signal processing and image analysis" group at the Institute for Informatics (IFI).

I  work in acoustics and more particularly with nonlinear propagation of ultrasound. I also teach part of the course "Digital signal processing".

I started working on nonlinearity in ultrasound during my PhD at the University of Oslo together with Prof. Sverre Holm and Ass. Prof. Andreas Austeng. Here is a brief introduction to nonlinearity: What is nonlinearity in sound propagation?


We did some work with numerical simulations and explored the possibility to use with sonars a technique widely used in medical imaging: "second harmonic imaging". If you want to know more check out: Simulation and nonlinearity in imaging.


From 2013 to 2015, I spent two years in France doing research at the French institute for health and medical research in Lyon.There I worked with therapeutic ultrasound. If you want to know how windsurfing relates to ultrasonic enhancement of drug delivery for cancer therapy, check out Ultrasound, cavitation, and cancer therapy.


My current assignment is part of the Center for Innovative Ultrasound solutions (CIUS). Our role at the University of Oslo is to provide better knowledge in the fundamentals of acoustic wave propagation and image formation (beamforming). 


I am also involved in the project "FORCE - imaging the force of cancer" in which we want to test the ability of acoustic radiation force to influence cell growth, motility, and apopotsis of cancer cells. You can watch a video of what the acoustic radiation force can do: Acoustic radiation force.
