I am currently (2016-2019) a PhD candidate in archaeology at the Department of Archaeology, Conservation and History (IAKH), University of Oslo (UiO). I graduated from UiO with an MA in archaeology and critical heritage studies in 2015, after submitting my thesis on responses by Norwegian heritage management to perceived challenges of globalisation and demographic changes. This work brought me to the University of Cambridge as an exchange student in 2014. I have participated in several archaeological excavations and heritage management projects, most recently at the Museum of Cultural History, UiO.
