As of January 2024 I am at NORCE.

My main research interest lies within the governance of energy transitions, with sustainable transport and mobility as a particular area of interest. I focus on public coordination of transport policy, and the role of cities in contributing to global climate governance.

My PhD project was a part of the research project CityFreight: Freight logistics in sustainable cities. I looked at what policy tools urban authorities have when working towards more energy efficient and sustainable freight transportation.

Vice-President of the PhD Candidate interest organisation at the University of Bergen (UiBdoc) 2022-2023

President of the PhD candidate committee at the Faculty of Social Sciences (Stip-SV) 2021-2022

MSc Energy, Environment and Society (University of Stavanger)

MA(Hons) International Relations (University of Edinburgh)

I was head of the interest organisation for PhD candidates as the Faculty of Social Science (Stip-SV), and as such I participated in a panel on equality in academia as part of the university's 75 anniversary celebrations. The panel was recorded and is available here.

I was also selected to participate in the 2022 Research Grand Prix (Forsker Grand Prix) as part of the Forskningsdagene festival. Here, participants are given 4 minutes to present their research in away the general public can understand and that grasps their attention. More information on the event is available here.
