Higher education and employment history

Håvard received a Master in chemical engineering at the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in London, UK in 2001 and a doctoral engineering in biomaterials from the Technische Universität München in 2004. His PhD thesis was "Development of an implant to heal gastro-oesphageal reflux diseases". Previously Håvard has been working with characterisation and manufacturing of porous materials for biomedical purposes at the Central Institute for Medical Engineering in Munich (2001-2004), calcification of heart valves at Helmholtz Institute for Biomedical Engineering in Aachen (1999-2000), Germany and scaffolds production for the Tissue Engineering Center at Imperial College, London (2000-2001). He had a post doctoral position at Department of Biomaterials from 2005-2009 with funding for the Norwegian Research Council and FUNMAT. Since 2013 he has been Associate Professor and Head of Department of Biomaterials, and Professor in Biomaterials since 2014.
