Mentality in Iron Age Scandinavia, and archaeological dissemination are my two main interests. Thus far, my academic experience has been primarily been towards exploring mentality in Late Iron Age Scandinavia, specifically through an in-depth analysis of the animal art carvings of the Oseberg ship.
My interest in archaeological dissemination has been practically focused, through my experience as a guide and disseminator at The Viking Ship Museum (2015-2020) and The Museum of Cultural History (2017-2020). My most recent position, before I begun as HEI's research and outreach coordinator in January 2021, was as the dissemination coordinator for The Gjellestad Ship Excavation in Halden, Norway (July 2020-December 2020).
