Professional Summary

I hold a MA in Architecture from The Oslo School of Architecture (AHO), and a MA in Human Geography from UiO. My main interest is human geography, particularly economic geography with questions related to social and green justice, evolutionary economic geography, system theory and innovation. I explore my interests through interdisiplinary academic writings, being a former board member in Kristian Ottesen`s Prize Work Group, participation as a former board member in Green Students and being on Green Student's voting list for two consecutive years. I am also quite innovative and was a participant in the finale in two innovation contests. As an artist and architect I am particularly interested in street art, photography, sculpture, contemporary architecture and urbanism, expressive painting and color, installations and performance art. I enjoy writing more conceptual short texts too.
