I am a PhD fellow in philosophy, working on topics in applied ethics. I am affiliated with the project "What should not be bought and sold?", funded by the SAMKUL scheme of the Research Council of Norway.

This spring (2019) I am a visiting student at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford and there I work on the ethical limits of markets, the ethics of emergencies, methods in applied ethics, and sex selection. In the fall (2019) I will be affiliated with Harvard's Department of Government as a Visiting Fellow on a Fulbright scholarship, with Michael Sandel as my academic supervisor. 

When I am not writing academic papers, I try to involve myself in the public debate about difficult ethical issues, such as selective abortion, markets in contested commodities and vegetarianism. I'm a regular contributor to the Norwegian daily Dagbladet. You can find my writings (in Norwegian) here.

The podcast Moralistene is a part of this exercise. On this podcast Ole Martin Moen and I discuss ethical issues of relevance for the wider public, and interview prominent philosophers like Peter Singer and Helga Varden. I hope you like it.
