Yngvar Kjus is a university lecturer at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo. His research focuses on media production across multiple platforms and online music mediation. He was recently postdoc in the research project Clouds and Concerts, which investigated innovations in live and recorded music mediation in contemporary music culture.

Yngvar Kjus joined CERMI because he wanted to join forces with other researchers who are exploring the affordances of new media technology. He thinks CeRMI-members are well-positioned to develop interdisciplinary collaborations and develop cutting edge research projects. His own current research focuses on new music media and how that inspires new forms of ​artistic expressions as well as new musical experiences among fans. 

Marika Lüders is an associate professor at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo. The core themes of her research relate to human experience of digital media and their social and societal implications. She has in particular examined social media: social media practices among young people; use and non-use of social media among older people; the potential of social media as collaborative knowledge-sharing tools in organizations; social media as journalistic news-sources; and the potential democratic implications of social media. 

Marika Lüders joined CERMI because researching media innovations benefits from combined and multidisciplinary efforts. CeRMI represents an opportunity for sharing and getting feedback on ongoing and individually-driven research, as well as an opportunity to gather forces for studying technology, organisational practice, content and human experiences.

Elisabeth Brun is a PhD-candidate at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo. The topic for her PhD-project is idea-development in TV-production for cross-platform distribution. Her project will explore the possibilities and needs for new methods in such creative processes.

Elisabeth Brun joined CERMI because as a new PhD-candidate -navigating in the fast changing field of cross platform-TV and genre innovation, it is essential to network and discuss with experienced colleges with similar interests. She looks forward to it!
