Short presentation

I am an associate professor in scientific computing (numerical analysis) with focus on efficient and reliable numerical methods for time-dependent partial differential equations. Application’s where this is of importance is found in for example quantum mechanics, geoscience and fluid mechanics.

My courses


My research focuses on higher order finite difference methods, for computational methods concerning wave propagation. In recent years I have applied these numerical methods, in collaboration with other researchers, particularly in CFD, geophysics and quantum mechanics. An active project that I work on right now, together with researchers at Stanford University, is to develop computational methods to simulate active volcanoes. Another recent project concerns relativistic quantum mechanics with the emphasis on spin dynamic.
