Short Biography

Jørgen Juncher Jensen, born in 1947 in Copenhagen, received his MSc in mechanical engineering in 1972 and his PhD in 1975, both at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

After his promotion, Jensen took a position as Assistant Professor at the faculty for mechanical engineering at DTU. In 1976 he was promoted to Associate Professor and then became professor in marine hydrodynamics in 1988. From 1985 to 2000, Professor Jensen led the Department of Ocean Engineering at DTU.

Starting in 2001, Jensen was head of the Maritime Technology section in the newly form Mechanical Engineering department at DTU and later, from 2007 to 2013, head of the division for Fluid Mechanics, Coastal, Maritime and Structural Engineering. From 2014 to 2015, he was also adjunct professor at the Norwegian University for Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. He retired as professor from DTU in 2017.

His main research areas are wave induced stochastic loads and response for maritime structures. A large part of his research activities concerns the further development of the theory for conditional stochastic processes.

Jørgen Juncher Jensen has received several awards for his work, such as the Director P. Gorm Pedersen prize, the bronze medal of the Royal Society of Naval Architects, London, the gold medal of the Alexander Foss foundation and the Statoil prize. He was awarded the DSc degree at DTU in 1995. He is a member of the Danish Academy of Technical Science.

Prof. Jensen is author and co-author of four scientific books. Since 1973, he has published more than 200 publications, mostly within stochastic wave load prediction for marine structures.

During his career, Professor Jensen has held guest lectures at notable international institutions, including NTNU Trondheim, University of California, Berkeley, USA, China Ship Scientific Research Center (CSSRC), Wuxi, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, and University of Michigan and, ABS, Houston, USA.
