Structural Geology and Ground Stability
I am resposible for a 15 credit course in structural geology.
Field Course in Earth Sciences
I am teaching part of a 5-point field course, in which students are trained in basic mapping techniques, which include mineral and rock identification and description in the outcrop, identification and measurement of basic geological structures, mapping of rock units and geological structures. The part of the course I teach (5 days) is dedicated to skill training going from a short practical training session to several assignments where the different skills have to be applied in selected outcrops with increasing degree of complexity.
I am responsible for 15-point course in Tectonics, in which the students learn about large-scale geodynamic processes.
Applied 3D geological mapping and modelling
I am responsible for a 5-point course that demonstrates the possibilities of modern geological mapping techniques, including done-based photogrammetry, 3D structural mapping and reconstruction. the course also highlights case studies from academia and mining.
2017 - Nordvulk Summer School on Magmatic Plumbing Systems
2016 - 3D Modelling as a tool in geological research
3D structural modelling is an increasingly applied tool in geological research. This course introduces the underlying ideas of 3D modelling as well as a variety of case studies, combined with practical, research-focussed training
PhD summer school: Natural Hazards in the Anthropocene
I am involved in teaching on the role of scientists in times of crises.
Since 2012 Supervision of 7 and co-supervision of six BSc student projects.
Since 2011 Supervision of 11 and co-supervision of six MSc student projects.
