I am the convenor of the research and education initiative, Literature, Cognition and Emotions (LCE). LCE is an interdisciplinary hub that brings together literary studies, linguistics, psychology and neurosciences in a new conversation about literature.

In 2019, I was awarded the first University of Oslo's Young Researchers Prize.
