Norwegian archaeologist, born 1985. I am originally an Iron-Age archaeologist with research interests in houses and households, ritual, gender, theory and methods, cognitive and social archaeology. In my research I have focused on prehistoric architecture, using a specific category of archaeological evidence – the built environment – as a point of departure to deeper studies of power expressions and hierarchy, gender construction, ritual behaviour, food practices, and the relationship of the living to the dead. In coming years I aim to extend my expertise by delving into long-term developments of Scandinavian prehistory from the Bronze Age to the Medieval Period.
MA (2008-2010) and PhD (2012-2015) in archaeology from the University of Oslo. I currently work as a researcher co-hosted by the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, and as Associate Professor at the Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo.
