Aage Ingebret Jøsang is associate professor at TEKMAR faculty at HSN in technical maritime operations specializing in transport, distribution and use of LNG for propulsion and power production on board vessels. The position comprises a combination of teaching, participation in joint projects and research work in maritime disciplines at the Faculty of Technology and Marine Sciences.
The academic background is a ph.d. in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) including experiments on a droplet-gas flow. The ph.d work was done back in 1997-2002. Since then he has worked in various positions and companies in the oil & gas industry. Resulting in a strong and varied experience from the offshore industry within both process engineering and complex physical modelling of flow, mass, heat transfer and thermodynamics.
Research field will be within maritime LNG including transport, distribution and use of LNG as a ship-fuel and power production.
