Background

I completed my education in comparative religion at the University of Oslo, specializing in Ancient Egyptian religion. My interest in material culture led to jobs in museums and an introduction to museology. Since 2014, I have worked as a senior curator at The Intercultural Museum (a part of Oslo Museum), which presents contemporary history in Oslo, focusing on migration and cultural diversity. I also manage The National Museum Network for Minorities and Cultural Diversity.
