Atle Rotevatn is professor of structral and reservoir geology at the University of Bergen, Norway.

He is also enjoys experimental work (plaster experiments emulating fault growth) and flow modelling. Prior to joining UiB in 2010, he was senior exploration geologist in the Norwegian E&P company Rocksource. Atle holds a PhD from the University of Bergen (2007), and an MSc from the University of Oslo (2004). Atle loves the UK, particularly the bit involving cream teas and geology in combination.
