Ailo Aasen has started his PhD in the group. He has a solid background in mathematics (Msc. degree). In addition, he has more than two years of experience with thermodynamic modelling from his work at SINTEF Energy Research. He was awarded with the “Stubban Prize” in 2014 for promising young mathematicians. The aim of his PhD will be to develop equilibrium and nonequilibrium thermodynamic descriptions in order to enhance the understanding of physical phenomena that occur in the hydrogen liquefaction process to be able to increase its energy efficiency. Ailo will be a much appreciated member of the team.
