Academic Interests

I am interested in digital social inclusion, media innovation and research ethics. I focus in particular on how minority and Indigenous children and adolescents use digital and social media. I also explore empirical cases of media innovation using theories and concepts relating to digital social inclusion, including user empowerment, participation and digital literacy.  

I was awarded a PhD at the University of Oslo in 2015.  

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

Tags: Media Innovation, Social Media-Innovation, Media and communication, Social media, Children and Media, Minority Languages, Participation, Media Use and Users, Research Methods, Research Ethics, Digital Media Literacy
