Bakgrunn og aktiviteter
Area of Work
- Sustainability and Life Cycle Thinking
- Big infrastructure project (roads, railways, powerplants, etc.)
Type of work
Research (PhD). I belong to the Building and Construction group @ BAT, IVT-NTNU.
Theme: "Effects of geometry, surface characteristics and traffic on environmental impacts of big infrastructure projects."
I am under the supervision of Assoc. Professor Rolf André Bohne. My research project is linked to the feri free costal highway actually under development in Norway, the E39 project. My project will run initially form 2015 to 2018.
