NJORD welcomes new Postdoctoral fellow Gaute Linga
NJORD is happy to welcome new postdoctoral fellow, Gaute Linga, to the center.
In his research, Gaute studies the complexity of fluid flow through porous media undergoing deformation due to e.g. fracturing and precipitation-dissolution processes. This is done by combining numerical simulations on the pore-scale and below with methods from statistical physics. The research includes development of models and numerical methods for simulation of two-phase flow coupled with solute transport and complicated boundary conditions, as well as carrying out computational studies which yield direct comparison to experiments, e.g. dynamic X-ray tomography data.
