Marie Eide Lien

Hi everyone!
My name is Marie, and just recently I started my 4-year PhD project with Thibaut Barreyre as my supervisor, and I will work with sub-surface fluid flow dynamics in hydrothermal systems. The project’s aim is to unravel the complex mechanisms that affect fluid flow in the sub-surface of these systems through observation, data analysis, and modelling. Further details of the project is a work-in-progress still.

I acquired both my bachelor and master degrees at UiB, so I am happy to be back!  During my master I had the pleasure of working with Asc. Prof Henk Keers on my geophysics MSc project titled “Analysis of Magma Chamber Activity at Yellowstone from 2010 to 2017”. The aim was to explain the observed surface deformation and associated seismicity using  seismic tomography models and inverted deformation data for volume changes in the underlying magma chamber. I also spent time researching the Yellowstone hydrothermal system and its possible relation to the seismicity and deformation.

I graduated from UiB in 2017. I then left Bergen to work as a high school teacher through a program, which aim is to motivate students in all social classes for STEM. As a part of the program I also obtained a teaching degree at the University of Oslo. During the summer of 2019 I moved back to Bergen and interning at Equinor in petroleum technology, a chance to also gain more experience in seismic and structural interpretation, production and field development.

Although I am in my home-office, glancing at RFB through my window, it’s great to be back at GEO. I look forward to see both well-known and new faces when we’re all back on campus. At Campus you will find Marie in room 3153a. Welcome to Geo 🙂
