Kari Anne K. Drangsland defended her PhD thesis at the Centre for Women's and Gender Research (SKOK) in January 2021. From 1 April 2021, she is employed as a postdoctoral fellow on the TemPro project - led by Jessica Schultz at CMI - of which SKOK is one of the partners.

Drangsland graduated as a human geographer from the University of Bergen (UiB) in 2007. Her PhD project was a part of the umbrella project "Waiting for an uncertain future: the temporalities of irregular migration" (Research Council of Norway). Her empirical focus was on temporality related to irregular migration in the German migration hub of Hamburg. Read her doctoral thesis here.

Before this, Drangsland worked as a researcher, consultant and university lecturer within the field of migration and urban studies. Her professional career has been guided by a profound interest in matters of migration, bordering, difference, labour and temporality.  Her work has focused on Norwegian asylum and integration policies and on questions concerning diversity and migration within urban spatial and social planning. These are also core issues in 'Planning and society', a masters course that Drangsland ran together with colleagues between 2012-2016, at the Department of Geography at UiB. Drangsland has also thought several courses at the Bergen School of Architecture, with a thematic focus on architecture and temporality, architecture and power, and feminist perspectives.

In 2007, Drangsland co-founded the Centre of Urban Ecology (CUE) in Bergen. She works with issues related to migration and urban development and conducts projects at the intersection of art, architecture and research. CUE worked with questions related to urban development in the face of climate change and with projects within the field of migration. In 2011, the Center of Urban Ecology received "Anette Tommesens Minnepris" (Norwegian Association for Asylum Seekers) for their work with the relation between asylum reception centres and the local community. In 2011, the Center was one of three nominees to the national design prize "Young Designer of the Year" by "Norsk Form".

Drangsland is a board member of the Norwegian Network for Migration Research (NNMF) and of the Nordic Migration Research (NMR). Previous board member of IMER Bergen (International Migration and Ethnic Relation) (2017-2020).
