Employments

Jan 2011Present: Associate professor in Offshore Wind Energy. DTU Wind Energy (2012-present) and DTU Mechanical Engineering (2011).  Appointed within The Ocean Energy Research Program, a collaboration between Statkraft and the three universities of DTU, NTNU and Uppsala. Research within offshore wind energy. Project manager for the 'Wave loads' project with participation of DTU Wind Energy, DTU Mech. Engng and DHI.  Supervisor of 2 PhD projects on bottom fixed wind turbines and co-supervisor of a PhD project on floating offshore wind turbines. Coordinator of DTU activities within The Ocean Energy Research Program.  

Mar 2009Dec 2010: Assistant professor in Ocean Energy. DTU Mechanical Engineering.  Appointed within The Ocean Energy Research Program, a collaboration between Statkraft and the three universities of DTU, NTNU and Uppsala. Research within offshore wind energy. Co-supervisor of a Ph.D. project on floating offshore wind turbines. Coordinator of DTU activities within The Ocean Energy Research Program. 

Nov 2006 – Nov 2008: Post doctoral Research Assistant. School of Mathematics,
University of Bristol, UK and DTU. Research into overtopping at breakwaters and coastal
structures. Numerical modelling of individual overtopping events in close collaboration
with experimental work at University of Plymouth. Additional research on inclusion of vorticity
in Boussinesq-type wave models for improved wave breaking and wave induced circulations. 

Jan 2005 – Oct 2006: Research Engineer. DHI Water & Environment, Denmark. Modelling
of wave impacts on offshore wind turbine foundations using a 3D Navier-Stokes
solver. I developed a coupling allowing waves from a Boussinesq solver to be transferred
to this Navier-Stokes code. I was also involved in laboratory experiments, wave modelling studies and modelling of the stratified flow at a cooling water outlet.

Dec 2002 – Jan 2005: Post doctoral Research Assistant. School of Mathematics, University
of Bristol, UK. Numerical modelling of wave impacts on break waters, as part of
the BWIMCOST project. The work focused on the effect of entrained air on the impact
of waves. The work included offshore wave detection, nonlinear wave transformation
and compressible flow close to the break water.
