Short bio

Volcanologist, I have always been curious of how rocks flow or rupture. From fieldwork observations, I always brought back samples which I first analyzed and later tested experimentally in apparatuses reproducing their natural environment.

Numerically reproducing my experiments, I confirmed the underlying physics of the natural phenomenon I had formerly observed. While developing new experimental prototypes and techniques in Europe, America and Asia, I developed the necessary skills which today allow me working jointly at the University of Oslo and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility on 4D imaging of rocks under extreme conditions.

Supervisor for the following CompSci project
