Bjørn Petter Jelle is a Senior Research scientist at SINTEF Building and Infrastructure, Department of Materials and Structures and a professor at the Department of Civil and Transport Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), within building physics, materials science and technology, solar radiation, thermal radiation, climate exposure, accelerated climate ageing, thermal transmittance, high-performance thermal building insulation materials, various experimental techniques, energy aspects, and related areas. He holds an M.S. degree in physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU (former the Norwegian Institute of Technology, NTH) in 1989, and a Ph.D. dgree from NTNU on the subject “Electrochemical and spectroscopic studies of electrochromic materials” in 1993. He has carried out practical pedagogical education on the subjects pedagogical theory, physics didactics, mathematics didactics, and chemistry didactics at NTNU (former the College of Art and Sciences, AVH, 1995) and he has for many years been teaching at university, in secondary, and primary school. He has been employed as a senior material and corrosion engineer at Reinertsen Engineering, where work tasks included material and coating evaluation, surface preparation and protection, coating application, cathodic protection design, corrosion and material aspects, fuel cell technology design, and research development. He has been employed as a Research Scientist at NTNU, including a postdoctorate, covering various areas such as material and corrosion technology, conducting polymers, sensor technology, electrochromic materials for energy efficient windows, air metal hydride batteries, fuel cell technology, solar cells, and hydrogen energy.
