I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) and Centre for Environmental Radioactivity (CERAD). I have a PhD in Environmental Sciences from Norwegian University of Life Sciences with my thesis focused on improving risk communication and stakeholder involvement in nuclear emergency preparedness.
I have spent almost 10 years researching risk communication about ionising radiation and have been involved in multiple EU projects dealing with the societal aspects of radiological emergencies, societal aspects of radon and naturally occurring radioactive material, and stakeholder involvement in environmental remediation and natural resource management.
I am on the management board of the European Platform for Social Sciences and Humanities in Ionizing Radiation Research (SHARE) and lead research area "Risk Assessment & Ecosystem Approach" and research umbrella on societal impacts at CERAD.
