TOBIAS ROLF

 

I am a geophysicist who gets excited about the dynamics and evolution of Earth and other planets’ interiors. In particular, my research focuses on thermochemical flows and heat transfer in the rocky mantle and lithosphere and how this is linked to planetary surface features, from the motions of tectonic plates and the evolution of their boundaries to gravity and topography observations to large impact craters. I develop numerical tools for computation of such 3D geophysical flows and apply them on multi-core high-performance computing clusters. Another essential part of my work deals with the efficient post-processing of the large resulting data sets and their appropriate visualization, e.g. using MATLAB and ParaView, for scientific publications as well as for research and outreach presentations.

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Earth & Beyond group of the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED) in Oslo, Norway.
