I am a senior research scientist at SINTEF Ocean. My research focuses on using both numerical and experimental methods to get insight into vortex induced vibrations/motions of marine structures. I am particularly interested in full scale experiments and data analysis of VIV and VIM. Recently, my work is focus on vortex induced motions of floating offshore wind turbine.
