Research interests

My research is focused on understanding how seismic waves can be used to map the lithosphere and the deep interior of the earth. I both develop the techniques necessary for analyzing seismic data and apply these techniques to problems ranging from exploration of oil to the investigation of the earth's lithosphere.

I have, together with PhD students, developed and applied 3D Elastic Full Waveform Inversion for industrial seismic data and time-lapse studies. A part of this research has been the development of a comprehensive C++ library for seismic modeling, imaging and inversion. The library supports modern hardware, such as GPUs, and is parallelized using MPI.

I supervise four PhD students working on different aspects of wave propagation and Elastic Full Waveform inversion.

I participate in the EU funded WAVES project and also in the ROSE consortium funded by the Norwegian Research Council and 20 industrial partners.

Currently I am on sabbatical leave as a guest researcher at JAMSTEC in Yokohama, Japan.

I have an official NTNU homepage and profiles on Google scholar and Research gate
