Academic Interests

  • Tight rocks, shale gas, shale oil
  • Nanoscale transport, reactions, and deformation
  • Statistical, computational and multi-scale physics
  • Friction, fracture, and transport in disordered media
  • Granular materials
  • Fluid-rock interaction processes
  • Magnetic intrusions in sedimentary basins
  • Mechano-chemical processes
  • Mineralogical CO2-storage


My current teaching activity focuses on revitalizing the teaching of undergraduate science coursees by seamless integration of computational methods in order to give students an early contact with research and industrially relevant problems.

I am working actively to make student learning the focus of my teaching activities, employing for example personal response systems in my lectures, and introducing active teaching methods to my courses.

Higher education and employment history

I have significant experience in the industrialization of research, both from working several years in a high-tech start-up company, and from technical due dilligence evaluations. I have initiated and developed several large scale industrially financed research projects that have resulted in patented technologies.
