I am a senior scientist in the structural mechanics section (VIM) of the department of Wind Energy. My motivation for working in this field is twofold. First, I would like to contribute to the development of Wind Energy as it plays a key role in combating climate change. Second, I love working in this applied field of science, bridging the gap between science and practice.

Research intersts and expertise:

Structural mechanics and lightweight design
Fiber reinforced composite materials and structures
Finite element analysis
Fracture mechanics
Mechanics of wind turbine blades
Optimal design
Software development
DTU Wind Energy's cross section analysis software BECAS
Industrial consultancy
