Francesca Watson

Research Scientist

I am a Research Scientist at SINTEF Digital in Oslo. I am involved in various projects relating to the development and use of the open-source Matlab Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST). These include applications relating to CO2 storage, CO2 adsorption modelling and battery simulation.

I am one of the release managers for MRST and one of the organisers of the MRST Symposium.

I am coordinator of the HEU project DigiBatt researching digitalisation of battery testing.
