Background and activities

Cand.scient. in astro-partcle physics from NTNU in 2003. In addition I have experience in several elected positions including 5 years as chief union representative at the former Sør-Trøndelag University College, and 8 years as party group leader in Sør-Trøndelag County Council, whic naturally has included the need to familiarize myself with som social science as well.

Professionally I have had the opportunity to widen my interests out from pure physics-subjects to questions like:

- Scientific method (including science vs. pseudoscience)

- Questions regarding technology and society

- Science policy

And questions where these subjects intersect

Some publications:

Kjelsberg, Ronny - Tupacs siste kamp. Humanist 02/16
