Background and activities

As the Communications Advisor and Web Editor at the Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG), my main focus is to make sure our research reaches out to the public. I run the CERG podcast, write about our latest publications, and keep in contact with regional, national and international media.

I completed a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology (NTNU) in 2014, and a Bachelor's degree in Journalism (Høgskulen i Volda) i 2006. In total, I worked eight years as a radio journalist at the Norwegian public broadcaster NRK before starting working at NTNU.

Since 2014 I have run Hjertebloggen (The Heart Blog), and still frequently update the blog with the latest news within Norwegian cardiovascular research. I am also the Communications Advisor and Web Editor at the Norwegian National Advisory Unit on Exercise Training as Medicine for Cardiopulmonary Conditions at St Olavs Hospital, Trondheim University Hospital. Furthermore, I am Advisor and Web Editor at the Norwegian PhD school of heart resarch, NORHEART.
