Ph.D candidate on a project regarding the right to be exempted on religious, philosophic, or life stands grounds in the norwegian primary education. This is a continuation of my master thesis in the didactics of religion from the University of Bergen.

I have a background from the norwegian school system, where I mainly taugth in secondary school. My educational background is in social studies and the humanities with bachelor degrees in political science (NTNU, 2009), study of religion (UiB, 2017), and history (UiB, 2021). This has been continued with masters degrees in peace and conflict transformation (UiT, 2012) and didactics of religion (UiB, 2019). This has been complimented with Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) (UiB, 2013), and continuing education in teaching controversial topics (UiB, 2019) and sex education (HiOA, 2017; INN, 2021).

Since 2016 I have been publishing and creating the podcast Lektor Lomsdalens innfall that deals with different aspects of and perspectives on education and the norwegian school system.
