Professor Mikael Mortensen's homepage

Rayleigh-Bénard convection computed using spectralDNS.

Welcome to my homepage! I work as a 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 4DSpace 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.
