I am an enthusiastic science communicator and have participated in and organized many science events for youth and schools . I have also appeared on TV, radio and other media over 40 times the past five years, on the topic Plastic pollution and effects of plastics.  Parcticipant and scientific advisor for the documentary TV-series "Plasthavet" (The Plastic Ocean") at NRK.
