Forskning

Inga Berre is professor at the Department of Mathematics and director of the Center for Modeling of Coupled Subsurface Dynamics (CSD) at the University of Bergen. Her main research interests are mathematical modelling, partial differential equations and numerical methods, motivated by simulation of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical processes in geothermal systems and fault reactivation induced by subsurface injection and production. She is the principal investigator of the ERC Consolidator Grant: "Mathematical and Numerical Modelling of Process-Structure Interaction in Fractured Geothermal Systems" (MaPSI, 2021-2026). In 2023 she was named Argyris Visiting Professor at the SimTech Cluster of Excellence, University of Stuttgart.

Inga Berre has served in multiple elected leadership positions, including the SIAM Council (member, 2022-2024), SIAM GS activity group (chair 2021-2022), SET-Plan Deep Geothermal Implementation Working Group (co-chair, 2019-2021), and the Joint Program Geothermal, European Energy Research Alliance (chair, 2018-2021). She is member of the Scientific Advisory Council of GFZ (2024-2027) and the Advisory Board of SFB1313, University of Stuttgart (2018-). She is member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences (2017-). She is Associate Editor of Geothermal Energy, Springer (2020-) and Interpore Journal (2023-).

At the University of Bergen, Inga Berre is member of The University Board (2021-2025). She has served on multiple boards for the Research Council of Norway, including the Portfolio Board for Natural Science and Technology (2019-2023) and the Division for Science Board (2015-2019).
