Background and activities
I am a PhD candidate in Science & Technology Studies (STS) affiliated with the project DRIVERS (Digitalization of the road sector and its consequences: the role of driving). The goal of the DRIVERS project is to create an understanding of how both existing and new technologies for automatization and digitalization affect the transport sector, and what effect these technologies may have on society, the transport sector, humans and non-humans in the future. Backup cameras and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) are examples of existing technologies of interest, as well as more-or-less new technologies for (semi-)autonomous driving, as exemplified by platooning technologies in Northern Norway and driverless buses in Stavanger.
I have a master's degree in Science & Technology Studies from NTNU. In my master's thesis I researched Norwegian architects and their understanding(s) of sustainable architecture (link in Norwegian). In addition, I have a bachelor's degree in musicology with specialization in media studies from NTNU.
