Academic Interests

My research is driven by a motivation to understand how users of digital media can engage in processes of innovation in order to bring about social change.  I critically explore empirical cases of media innovation using theories and concepts relating to user empowerment and participation, primarily in the context of social and digital media.  In connection with this, my postdoctoral research (2015-2020) also explores how children develop digital media literacy.  

I was awarded a PhD at the University of Oslo in 2015.  My PhD explored how users of minority languages created new opportunities for communication in Social Media. 

I have taught courses in media history and media institutions, research methods, and journalism at the Department of Media and Communication, University of Oslo.
