About

I am working as a consultant in COWI with expertise in building physics, energy efficiency and sustainability in new and retrofitted buildings. I enjoy the process of finding the right solution for our customers by listening, being curious, asking questions, pushing boundaries and cooperating.

I am passionate about solutions to create a better world. One of the challenges we face is depletion of resources and energy. We need to focus on energy efficiency, using renewable energy sources and energy storage on a large scale.

In order to make a contribution (and maybe a change), we need to understand and experience, we need to work together on a multidisciplinary level, we need to be ambitious. And we need enthusiastic and passionate people.

I strive to be one of them in my field of expertise, to develop my skills and expertise to fit my ambitions and my vision, and to contribute and share my knowledge with others.

Educational background

2020 - nowConsultant in Building PhysicsCOWI
2016 – 2020PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering

This project focuses on reducing the energy consumption and increasing the energy efficiency of existing buildings. It takes into account optimization of the building envelope and looks into how building automation can contribute to energy efficient refurbishment.

This project was funded by ENERSENSE.
Norwegian University of Science and Technology

Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering
2013 – 2015Master of Science in Sustainable Architecture

This MSc program focussed on the integration of sustainable solutions into architectural context, regarding both existing and new designs. The concepts range between traditional and state-of-the-art solutions, and are used to achieve high-quality and cost effective architecture that contributes towards creating a zero emission built environment.
Norwegian University of Science and Technology

Faculty of Architecture and Design
2010 – 2013Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Building and Planning

This BSc program focussed on developing skills to analyze, to design, to cooperate and to present design projects. The program combines the knowledge of architectural principles with a technical background, resulting in architectural engineering. During my bachelor I choose to focus on building physics and systems.
