Svend Tollak Munkejord

Chief Scientist

Svend Tollak Munkejord is chief scientist in multiphase flow modelling at SINTEF Energy Research, where he has been employed since 1998. He has worked within different research employing mathematical and numerical flow modelling and experiments, emphasizing the coupling of thermos and fluid dynamics. Munkejord has co-supervised 8 PhD candidates. He has been an employee representative on the board of SINTEF Energy Research, and he currently leads the Tekna committee at the institute.
