    Research interests

    My research interests center around environmental problems and governance. My interdicipinary Ph.D. on ocean governance, concerns how integrated ocean management contributes to protection of the marine environment. The Ph.D. takes a problem-based approach to environmental objectives and problems. Further, it includes an approach to governance and focus on (nation) state governance. The Ph.D. includes a concept study and a case study, thus I am familiar with different legal and social science methods. 

    My postdoctoral position is related to the project Developing Good Ocean Governance (DOGA), financed by the Research Council of Norway. Currently, I am developing a theoretical framework for the project on the relationship between governance, law, and science. Further, I will identify and develop criteria for environmental evaluation of governance instruments (such as statutory acts and plans). From 2022, I will also participate in a project financed by the FRAM Centre, Shifting coasts: Competing uses, sustainability, and increased food production (CoastShift). In this project I will, somewhat similar, analyze how governance instruments of importance to the coastal communites meet criteria for being "environmentally sustainable activities," inspired by how these criteria is defined in the EU regulation on sustainable finance taxonomy.

    Before taking a research position at UIT the Arctic University of Norway, I worked with corporate governance as group and legal counsel, secretary to and member of the top management and board of directors for various Norwegian and international group of companies. I have also worked as a solicitor.
