Field of work

I am Innovation Advisor at the Mohn Centre for Innovation and Regional Development on the Bergen campus.

At the Mohn Centre, I work as a Competence Broker for FORREGION (previously MobiFORSK), a program from Vestland County Municipality that works on facilitating innovation and research collaboration between academia and businesses in the region.

I am also involved in HVL Skape, the student innovation program at HVL. There, I am engaged as Project Manager for Bergen Entrepreneurship Academy, a new joint venture in student entrepreneurship from the three academic institutions HVL, NHH and UiB.
I am union representative at HVL for Econa, the labor union for business economists.

I have a Master's degree in Economics from NHH, and have varied experience from the private business sector. I have previously worked with communication in the PR industry, business development in real estate software, and with management and marketing in a tech startup.

I am particularly interested in technology, digitalisation, innovation and sustainability.
