She serves as Head of Teaching at the Department of Social Anthropology.

Strønen is the author of the monograph Grassroots Politics and Oil Culture in Venezuela. The Revolutionary Petro-State (Palgrave McMillan 2017). The book is available Open Access here.

She is currently the project leader for the INTPART-project Environmental Sustainability, Marine Economies and Gendered Socio-Economic Inequalities (ENMARINE): A Norway-Brazil Partnership in Research and Teaching (2020-2024). This is an interdisciplinary strategic partnership in teaching and research development, thematically focused on the intersections between environmental sustainability, marine economics, and gendered socio-economic inequalities. The project is based on a collaboration between the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Bergen (UiB), and the Department of Oceanography and the Department of Education at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande (FURG) in Brazil. The project is financed by the The Research Council of Norway (NRC) and Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education (DIKU).

The project was anchored at the Department for Social Anthropology, UiB, and the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI), and was financed by the Norwegian Research Council (NFR). The project focuses on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) amongst Norwegian energy companies operating abroad. Strønen's case study was concerned with Equinor's CSR-work in Brazil.

She has also been a project member of the the CEIC-CMI Angola Programme (2015-2018) at the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI), and the project coordinator for the sub-project Gender Relations and Human Rights in Angola. The project was funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Luanda. She has also served as the project coordinator and editor for the CMI-project Everyday Manoeuvres: Military-Civilian Relations in Latin-America and the Middle East (2013-2016), funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, throught which she conducted case studies in Venezuela and Brazil.

As a PhD candidate, she was part of the research project The Role of the Oil and Gas Industry in the Promotion of Poverty Reduction and Social Volatility (2008-2010), funded by the Norwegian Research Council (NFR).

She obtained her PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Bergen in 2014. In addition, Strønen holds a MA degree in Anthropology of Development from the University of Bergen, and a MA degree in International Journalism from City University, London.
