Asbjørn Mo (born 1959) is MSc from the NTNU (1983) and received his doctorate degree in hydrodynamics from the University of Oslo in 1986. Mo has worked with SINTEF since 1987, and is presently a Principal Scientist with dedicated strategic responsibilities within certain areas. Mo is also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Oslo. Mo’s field of research is mathematical modelling of metal solidification processes and mushy zone phenomena. Mo has played a central role in launching, taking scientifically part in, and in the leadership of several national and international research projects. Mo has carried out most of his research in collaboration with national and international colleagues in industry and academia, and has numerous joint publications with research teams in Australia, France, The Netherlands, and Switzerland. Mo has authored or co-authored about 70 international publications, and serves as a reviewer for several international journals. Mo is presently a deputy member of the Board of Directors for the Division of Science in the Research Council of Norway.
