Background and activities

I am a PhD Candidate at the Industrial Ecology Programme in the Department of Energy and Process Engineering at NTNU. My research focuses on environmental questions related to residential buildings.

 

Research

I work within the research area of Energy, Transport and Buildings, and my focus is on residential buildings and environmental questions related to historic and future developments within the residential building stock. This includes studying past and future stock development, questions related to time resolution of climate accounting of electricity consumption, and user behaviour. My goal is to achieve new knowledge that can help us develop new and better policies and strategies, necessary for mitigating climate change.

 

Background

After finishing my BSc in Biology, where I specialised in ecology, I enrolled in the Industrial Ecology Master's degree programme. During my master degree I specialised in systems analysis, and did my Master thesis on the flow of phosphorus (P) in the Norwegian aquaculture and fisheries.

 

Teaching

As part of my PhD I have also been the assistent teacher in the course TEP4295 - Environmental Analysis and Industrial Ecology (Miljøanalyse og industriell økologi).
