Knut Erik is an associate professor within the field of computational fluid dynamics. He holds a PhD from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. His thesis dealt with the development of models for separation of water from oil by means of an electrical field including surface-active agents. After his PhD he worked for SINTEF Energy, primarily with the development of a method for fluid-structure interaction in CO2 pipelines. In 2012 he started working for Lloyd's Register with simulations of gas dispersion, fires and explosions. Here, he was also acting as technical lead for the consequence modelling group. He started teaching at the University of Stavanger in 2014 and in 2018 he started a full position as an associate professor at the department of mechanical and structual engineering and materials science.
