Short bio

Marie E. Rognes received her Master (2005) and Ph.D. (2009) degrees in applied mathematics at the Centre for Mathematics for Applications, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, University of Oslo. She then joined Simula Research Laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow in 2009, before being employed as a Senior Research Scientist in 2012. She has acted as Head of Department for the Biomedical Computing Department at Simula since 2012.

Rognes' research interests revolve around numerical methods for partial differential equations, in particular the analysis and implementation of finite and mixed finite element methods including multi-mesh methods. Rognes started working with the FEniCS Project in 2007 and has been involved as a core team member ever since, focusing in particular on automated code generation for non-trivial finite element spaces and element spaces defined over manifolds; automated goal-oriented adaptivity and error control; and automated derivation of adjoints of time-dependent finite element models. Rognes has applied this work to a range of applications including simulating soft tissue such as viscoelastic materials and gels; mantle convection, ocean circulation, or the electrical activity in the heart.
