Academic Interests

I am interested in how children and young people use new media in their everyday lives. My PhD (2015, University of Oslo) explored how young Sámi and Irish people used social media to create new opportunities for communication in minority and Indigenous languages. I work primarily with qualitative research methods including online observation and interviews. I am also interested in ethical issues that arise when engaging in research with children and young people.

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