My research interests lie in the intersection of social psychology, organizational psychology and cross-cultural psychology. I am a social psychologist (MSc in Psychology with specialization in Social and Community Psychology), and in my PhD-project I investigated cultural differences in how applicants want to present themselves in job interviews and how Norwegian leaders respond to applicants who present themselves in a way that is not in line with expectations. The PhD-project was part of the larger project "Recruitment in a Multicultural Society" funded by the Research Council of Norway. Now I work mainly with three projects:

Stereotypes of Norwegian Social Groups

Based on models of stereotype content and the relationship between stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination, my work explores stereotypes of different social groups in Norwegian society and address the role of specific emotions in the relationship between stereotypes and discrimination. I am also interested in age stereotypes and how older people's perception of what it means to be "old" may affect functioning in different areas.

Diversity in the Norwegian Police

In collaboration with researchers at the Norwegian Police University College, I am studying the nature and consequences of diversity in the Norwegian Police. Increased diversity among employees, an inclusive working environment and equal career opportunities are among the objectives in the Police department’s diversity policy. We want to investigate how police officers experience their working environment and career opportunities. We are also interested in investigating whether there are systematic differences between different groups of employees in experiences of the work environment and career opportunities. In this project we have a broad approach to diversity, focusing on gender, sexual orientation, immigration background, etc. In the autumn of 2016 /spring of 2017, about 3,000 police staff answered questions about diversity, working environment and career paths in a comprehensive questionnaire. Now we are going to analyze their answers.

Asylum centers in the neighborhood

As part of the project "Imagining and experiencing the refugee crisis”, I collaborate with Susanne Bygnes (Department of Sociology) and Elisabeth Ivarsflaten (Department of Comparative Politics) on a project in which we look at how Norwegians have experienced the establishment of asylum reception centers in their neighborhoods. We are interested in the types of contact that has occurred between people in the local community and asylum seekers, and what consequences different forms of contact may have. The project is based on data from the Norwegian Citizen Panel
