Senior Academic Librarian, Research support, Library contact for mathematics and computer science

I am the library contact for mathematics and computer science, providing courses and guidance in information literacy, literature search, scholarly publishing, and reference management for students and researchers. You can ask for individual guidance ("book a librarian"), teaching classes from the library, send me an email with your request, or come to my office at the Natural Science Library for a chat (Open door Fridays 12:30-14:00).
I am also involved with the University Library Digital Lab.

As part of the research support team, I provide guidance on Open Science, Research Data, and Research Data Management. We regularly provide courses, e.g. on Data Management Planning (DMP), FAIR and open research data, and reuse of research data. You can find upcoming courses in the calender or request a tailored course.
Please feel free to contact us at research-data@uib.no if you have questions or to arrange an appointment.

From October 2023-2024, I am leading the project Data Management Plans: Support package for Norwegian higher education libraries funded by the National Library.

My PhD and postdoctoral research were in the field of cell- and molecular biology and immunology.

I teach and provide training for students and researchers on different aspects of information literacy, reference management, Open Science practices, FAIR research data, and Research Data Management. Some of my presentations are available on Zenodo.

I am certified Software Carpentry instructor, which I teach at the UiB Library Digital Lab.
