Jan Einar Gravdal


I am a senior researcher at NORCE Energy where I work in the Drilling and Well Modeling group. I am also Associate Professor at the University of Stavanger, where I work at the Faculty of Science and Technology. My expertise is in mathematical modeling, in particular systems for process monitoring and control of drilling operations and their efficiency. As an associate professor, I am responsible for teaching and mentoring Master and PhD students at the Department of Energy and Petroleum Technology. I hold a PhD in energy and petroleum technology, a master’s in applied mathematics, and a bachelor's degree in marine engineering and business administration. I am educated at the University College of Bergen (BSc), University of Bergen (MSc), University of Stavanger and University of Houston (PhD). I have long and broad experience both as a researcher, lecturer, project manager, and as an administrative officer for a research group. Since 2015, I have led the development and deployment of OpenLab, an infrastructure for education, research and innovation. OpenLab ( is designed to accelerate the uptake of new technology and to renew the education of future engineers and researchers in the energy field. OpenLab is on the Norwegian roadmap for research infrastructure and has a development cost of NOK 48 million. Since 2011, I have led the program "Safe and cost-efficient drilling" under DrillWell, a center for research-based innovation led by NORCE. The program has has a total budget of NOK 73 million in the period 2011-2019. I have also had the pleasure of participating in the development of commercial successes from the idea stage to widely implemented technology.
