Knut Steinar Bjørkevoll

Role at the IO-Centre: 
Responsible for work package 5 under IO3

Holds a PhD in theoretical physics from 1992. Worked on development and use of advanced mathematical models in drilling operations. The models are now used both offline and online with link to data from drilling systems in real time. Experience includes development and use of models for automatic managed pressure drilling, training simulator for drilling, and decision support systems. Also offshore experience gained when giving support during drilling of nine managed pressure drilling sections.
