Academic interests

PhD-candiate working on the Norwegian Research Council research project PHOTOFAKE. Here, I research new, technical camera-based practices and their potential for disinformation.

I have worked extensively with new and emerging forms of media media over the last decade, especially user generated content (UGC) and its role and use in traditional media. I published the book "Digital Source Criticism" [Digital kildekritikk] on Gyldendal in 2021.


For most of the 2010's I have worked as a journalist, acting editor and advisor at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's R&D-lab NRKbeta. I have also worked as a strategic advisor at the Tinius Trust, the largest shareholder in Schibsted Media Group. I hold an MA in New Media and Digital Culture from the University of Amsterdam and served as a board member at the Norwegian Online News Association (NONA).

I have guest lectured at OsloMet, NTNU, University of Stavanger, Volda University College and Kristiania University College. Additionally, I have presented my work at conferences such as SXSW Interactive, The Conference, Nordic Media Days and SKUP. I annually contribute to the media future predictions from the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard.
