Field of work

In 2001, I took my doctoral degree on the development of Norwegian climate policy until the late 1990s. Since then, I have completed a number of history projects, primarily in the fields of knowledge history, environmental history and energy history. I have also written aboit professions, public management and banking. All my projects have cronologically been on modern history, after 1870, in a Norwegian context.
