Physiologist and natural science educator.
Subject coordinator for natural science in teacher training for secondary education.
Teaching experience from lower secondary education (Halden and Trondheim municipalities) and higher education (University of the West of Scotland, NTNU, UiA).
Research background in physiology and neurophysiology with a PhD "Protease-activated receptor 2 in arthritis: in vivo mechanisms" (University of the West of Scotland / based at the Centre for Rheumatic Diseases, University of Glasgow) and postdoctoral research in brain imaging with advanced MRI techniques as well as some work in the field of exercise and cognitive function (based at the Faculty of Medicine, NTNU, now Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences).
Current R&D work is focused on teaching and learning of natural science and physiology, in teacher education programmes and in schools.
My earlier research was within physiology and neurophysiology (2004-2017). Now my research interests lie within science education, both in secondary and higher education.
I teach science education and physiology at the Department of Natural Sciences, mainly for students in our teacher education programmes for lower and upper secondary school (middle and high school). In addition, I follow up with students out in teaching practice and teach outdoor education for international students on the NORSEC exchange programme.
