Academic interests

My research is part of the project Science Fictionality: Pathways to possible presents. I look at imagined "climate-changed" futures in Norwegian and (transnational) Africanfuturist artifacts.

Background

I have a few years behind me as a freelance journalist and still work on media productions (see digital portfolio here). Have worked mostly in development aid-communication, for SAIH, the Norwegian Council for Africa and Norad.

I have lived in and worked with East and southern Africa. Recent productions include a podcast series about transgender people in Zimbabwe for SAIH, and the anthology "Foul Play in The Congo" about the French and Moland case. Regular columnist in Klassekampen and Bistandsaktuelt.
