Welcome to my homepage!

and the Who's Helle crash course

ON APRIL 10, 2007, I STARTED WORKING FOR DET NORSKE VERITAS, AND I AM NO LONGER AN EMPLOYEE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OSLO.

I USED TO work as administrative manager of the research centre Physics of Geological Processes, PGP. PGP is a cross-disciplinary physics/geology research centre at the University of Oslo. PGP integrates fieldwork, laboratory experiments, theory and computer modeling to reach the goal of obtaining a fundamental and quantitative understanding of the Earth’s complex patterns and processes. PGP is one of 13 Norwegian Centres of Excellence financed by the Norwegian Research Council. 

Before I came to PGP in 2003, I worked for the consulting firm Accenture for 6 years, dealing with organizational development and performance enhancement.

I've got a Master in Physics from INSA Toulouse in France and NTNU in Trondheim.

My roots are still the oil capitol of Norway, Stavanger, although I have now settled by the foot of the forest in northern Oslo with my husband and our three children. Here we live in a squeaking, loveable old house with one small sofa, giant world maps, 50 teddy bears, 2000 books and about 100 pairs of skis. And this is where we intend to live happily ever after.



For the time being, my homepage is only available in English, as I work in an international environment and expect mainly international visitors to my homepage. If I am mistaken - about this - or anything else in this page - please send me an e-mail and let me know!
