In September Louison Thorens and James Matthew Campbell joined us at PoreLab Oslo, and we are happy to have them here with us! Louison will be doing his Ph.D. with us and will stay at PoreLab Oslo for the whole period of his Ph.D. program. He comes from the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, in
The 2nd national Interpore workshop on porous media is organized in Oslo on November 9, 2018. Registration for the workshop is now open. The first part of the day is reserved for talks given by invited speakers. A poster session follows after the talks. Abstracts for the poster session can be sent here. When sending abstracts
May 14-17 most of PoreLab are going to New Orleans for the InterPore annual meeting. This is the biggest and most important conference for Porous Media science in the world. Postdoctoral fellow Marcel Moura will be organizing a career event there, he is the chair of their Student Affairs Committee, and professor Alex Hansen is
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (IBM) invites applicants for a three years PhD in a joint research project between the Geotechnical research group, the Road, Transport and Geomatics research group and the PoreLab Center of Excellence. The area of research is Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical modelling of soil behavior during freezing and thawing processes. The PhD
Øivind Wilhelmsen is awarded the Research Council of Norway’s 2018 Prize for Young Research Scientists.
Wilhelmsen and his colleagues focus their research work on what occurs on and along surfaces, and how surficial properties can be exploited both in current and future technologies. This field will have major significance for the development of tomorrow’s energy systems. The results of the research carried out by Wilhelmsen and his colleagues will be
Dr. Qingwang Yuan is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University. His research interests are in modeling of multicomponent, multiphase, multiscale flows in porous media with applications in enhanced oil recovery, reactive transport, non-Darcy flows, shale permeability, and hydraulic fracturing. Dr. Yuan has published 17 peer reviewed journal publications and 15 conference papers. He was a
On November 21, the Director of the Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC), Prof. Hai-Qing Lin, and Rector Gunnar Bovim, NTNU, signed a Cooperative Agreement for academic exchange and collaboration. PoreLab is strongly involved in this collaboration together with QuSpin, the second Centre of Excellence within the department of Physics, NTNU. The pictures show the

It gives us great pleasure to announce Renaud Toussaint, University of Strasbourg, as a new member of the centre, where he will hold a researcher II position. His background is originally on theoretical physics, with through the years interests shifting towards complex systems in earth science, and the addition of computational techniques and experimental work
The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics is in some sense the “Physics United Nations.” Alex Hansen is participating at the triannual General Assembly (October 9-13, 2017) in Sao Paulo as outgoing vice president at large. IUPAP President Bruce McKellar has just written this article for Physics Today describing what IUPAP is doing: Commentary: International
InterPore Newsletter 2017 introduce PoreLab as the newest institutional members of Interpore. InterPore offers institutional membership to academic institutes, national labs, or industrial companies. Currently, InterPore has more than 45 institutional members (see www.interpore.org/activities/institutional-members). PoreLab is now an institutional member, even though it is not a university or national lab.
