I am Senior Researcher at PGP (Physics of Geological Processes) at the University of Oslo. I am the scientific coordinator of the Fluid Earth Group at PGP, which involves activities on volcanic processes, CO2 sequestration, and petroleum systems.

PGP was a Norwegian Center of Excellence aiming to bring geologists and physicists to work together in order to get a better understanding of the geological processes. Although the CoE status of PGP ended, PGP activities continue in a group in-between the Departments of Physics and Geosciences.

Our paper entitled "Igneous sill and finger emplacement mechanism in shale-dominated formations: a field study at Cuesta del Chihuido, Neuquén Basin, Argentina" has been accepted in the Journal of the Geological Society of London.

June 2015 - Paperbook chapter in Advances in Volcanology

Our review entitled "Laboratory Modelling of Volcano Plumbing Systems: A Review" has been accepted in the Advances in Volcanology book edited by Christophe Breitkreuz and Sergio Rocchi on "Physical Geology of Shallow Magmatic Systems: Dykes, Sills and Laccoliths". It is the first review on this subject, and we hope this paper will become a reference

27 Feb. 2015 - Interview at the MatNat Faculty!
