Mathilde Hotvedt – BRU21 research

Mathilde Hotvedt is a PhD student in BRU21 – Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)’s Research and Innovation Program in Digital and Automation Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry. She develops hybrid data-driven/mechanistic models to optimize oil and gas production. Conventional models based on physics laws often lack accuracy, but provide clear insight into the process. Models based on machine learning provide higher accuracy, but lack interpretability. The idea behind Mathilde’s project is to combine high accuracy, interpretability and computational efficiency of these types of models for efficient real-time optimization.
The project is a collaboration between BRU21/NTNU and Lundin Energy Norway. Read more about BRU21 here
