Academic interests:
 

Structural geologist with expertise in salt tectonics, sedimentary basin evolution, seismic data interpretation, subsurface fluid migration and physical analogue modelling. Current research includes characterisation and structural de-risking of potential CO2 storage sites on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, as part of the Norwegian CCS Research Centre -  NCCS (host Sintef)
