Junior professor Carina Bringedal

We are very pleased to announce that Carina Bringedal is joins the SFB 1313’s research and thus SimTech as a Junior Professor from 1st December 2018. She moves from Hasselt University (Belgium) to the University of Stuttgart.

Career stages:

  • 2015: PhD from the University of Bergen in Applied Mathematics. She worked on problems related to geothermal energy extraction: Both natural convection currents, and on upscaling of pore scale formulations for temperature-induced chemical reactions including an evolving interface at the pore scale.
  • 2016/17: Postdoc at Bjerknes Centre of Climate Research. Focus on variability in ocean currents in the North Atlantic.
  • From 2018: University of Stuttgart. Junior professor at SFB1313, project area A and C.

Relations to porous media

Interface-driven processes in porous media are very interesting to her as she worked on evolving interfaces in porous media during her PhD and during her postdoc in Hasselt. She looks forward to learning more about interface-driven processes, and plans to focus on evaporation at the pore scale during her time in Stuttgart.

Relations to the University of Stuttgart

During her PhD Carina Bringedal was member of NUPUS, which was a collaboration between the University of Stuttgart and the University of Bergen (among others). In this context, she had her first visit to Stuttgart already in 2010, during her Master studies.

Research interests:

  • Upscaling (homogenisation)
  • Pore scale modelling
  • Phase field modelling
  • Evolving interfaces
  • Porous media flow
  • Reactive transport.

We welcome her at the University of Stuttgart and wish her a pleasent start!
