Welcome to my homepage! I work as an Associate Professor in Fluid Mechanics at the Department of
Mathematics, University of Oslo. My primary interests
are Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and the many aspects of turbulent fluid
flows, ranging from physics, modeling, numerical methods,
software implementation and applications. I spend part of my time within the
strategic research initiative, where we study instabilities and turbulence in
the polar ionosphere. I am also a Python enthusiast and I use this language as
often as possible in teaching and scientific computing.
29/5 2017 Sebastian Gjertsen defended his master thesis Development of a Verified and Validated Computational Framework for Fluid-Structure Interaction: Investigating Lifting Operators and Numerical Stability.
24/5 2017 I presented the spectralDNS project at the Predictive Complex Computational Fluid Dynamics conference at KAUST.
