I have a background in energy and political economy and hold a master in Political Economy from University of Manchester (2012), a master in economics from Aalborg University (2013) and a PhD-degree in sustainable energy planning from Aalborg University (2016).
I have worked as a researcher and teacher within the topic of sustainable energy transition at Aalborg University from 2013 to 2021. Since 2021 I have energy political research topics in the research group Climate, Environment and Sustainable Development at NORCE in Stavanger.
My research has a primary focus on economic and political questions within renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy system integration. I am currently involved in several projects dealing with the energy transition. This includes the mapping of waste heat resources in the Nordic-Baltic project WasteHeatSES, renewable energy system integration in the European projects ROBINSON, Trineflex and ELEXIA, a European energy data space in OMEGA-X, and the conditions for new energy intensive industry in the Norwegian region of Agder in the project FornyAgder.
