BIO

My scholarly background is a MA in Archaeology from the NTNU University Museum, where I worked with predictive modelling of iron age agricultural settlements in mid-Norway. I also hold an MSc in Archaeological Prospection from the University of Bradford in England. From November 2011 I was a PhD-candidate at the NTNU University museum, which led to the defence of my PhD-thesis in October 2016. This work was entitled " The Application of Geophysical Methods in Norwegian Archaeology. A study of the status, role and potential of geophysical Methods in Norwegian archaeological Research and Cultural Heritage management.". From 2017 I have been employed as a Senior Researcher, and am mainly occupied in varried geophysically related researcher projects - many of which involves national and international collaboration with external partners outside of the NTNU.

My scholarly interrests are: Geophysical prospection, method development, GIS and digital modelling, Iron Age agrarian settlements and landscape analyses.
