Petter G. Almklov – Adjunct Professor

Industrial Digital Transformation

Petter G. Almklov joins the SIRIUS centre in a 20% position from 2019. He is Adjunct Professor at the Department of Computer Science at NTNU and holds a Phd (Dr. Polit) in organizational anthropology from NTNU after a Siv Ing degree in geological engineering. In addition to his position at IDI he is employed as senior researcher at NTNU Social Research. Almklov did his PhD on interdisciplinary collaboration in a subsurface department in a petroleum company. A particular focus in this work and subsequent research is on the relationship between work practice and representational digital artefacts (models, logs, maps, seismic data), studying how interpretations and decisions come about, particularly in operational situations. After his PhD much of his research was conducted at NTNU’s Centre of Integrated Operations, particularly in connection real time reservoir optimization and subsurface modelling.  His work has been published in leading journals in the fields of Information Systems and within Science and Technology studies. He has also extensive experience from high tech contexts outside the petroleum domain such as space operations and transport.
