Mikkel is a PhD student in Professor Tim Dodwell's Data Centric Engineering group at University of Exeter. A civil engineer (Arctic Technology) and environmental scientist by training, his expertise lies in the modelling and numerical analysis of complex hydro-environmental problems. His current research is concerned with uncertainty quantification of hydrogeological flow- and transport models.

Mikkel's research interests revolve around the intersection between environmental health and pollution management technologies, and computational statistics and uncertainty quantification. As such, one of his research aims is to make the powerful, emerging techniques within the field of modern MCMC algorithms accessible to a wider audience in engineering consultancy.
