What are the Norwegian energy system’s impacts on our local biodiversity? Our research project aims to find out, and to present our research, we created a board game.
In the world of academia and technology, innovation stands as the driving force that propels us forward into the future. It is the foundation upon which progress is built, and at the Faculty of Engineering, we are nurturing and celebrating the innovative spirit of our students and researchers.
Collaboration between Chinese and Norwegian researchers has yielded valuable insights, including the utilization of ground source heat pumps in Scandinavia and beyond.
Polymers have transformed our lives  . We have been benefiting from them since approximately 1600 BC when natural rubber was first discovered. However, plastic products are often mismanaged once they reach the end of life. The solutions we need rely on a whole systemic and structural change within the plastic system.
During the fall semester I got the opportunity to do a research stay with the Center for Marine Debris Research (CMDR) on Oahu, Hawai’i. One of the aims was to get to know the plastic debris researchers and their work, and collaborate on a project involving plastic debris entanglements of wildlife by gathering data from local organizations.
Obstructive sleep apnea is linked with several diseases, and is often treated with surgery where it is difficult to be completely sure of the outcome. In my PhD project, I work with simulations that may increase the patients benefit from surgery.
Winter is here and animals in the wild are facing challenges of how best to spend their energy. A lot of the small birds that can be seen now, were hatched this year and grew rapidly in the spring to reach their adult body size.
The Arctic white winter wonderland. Ocean is covered by sea ice where seals and polar bears live. The landscape is mesmerizing. Although it is always cold here, this part of the planet is subjected to strong seasonal changes. The most dramatic being light.
