Research interests

  • For the last twelve years I have been involved in jointed research projects between industry and academia covering the Norwegian continental shelf and the adjacent Barents Sea-Svalbard region. The main part of my studies and research involves seismic interpretation and mapping with emphasis on the basin geometry and crustal structure, sediment distribution, structural style and timing of tectonic events. This provided me with expertise both at reservoir- and at regional-scales: studies on the formation and evolution of sedimentary basins, as well as on the continental margin and establishment of regional tectonic models. A central part of my work focuses on integrated seismic-gravity-magnetic interpretation. As such, I have valuable working experience with the latest technologies of 3D/2D seismic workstation interpretation and modeling, seismic processing, gravity/magnetic interpretation and modeling, well-log interpretation and modeling, and basin-modeling. In addition, I am quite experienced in Unix- and PC/Macintosh-based software, and several of my studies involve computer programming and modeling.
