I was born and raised in Lødingen, Nordland. I studied geology at the University of Oslo and completed my Masters Degree in 1996. My thesis is titled "Composition and Evolution under São Miguel, the Azores: Evidence from Ultramafic Xenoliths". I have previously worked on volcanism and melt processes under Iceland and the Canary Islands. I've been employed at the Nature Museum in Kristiansand since 2010.

My main task is to curate the geological collections at NBH. We have six collections of minerals, rocks and fossils, and a data base for each of these. In addition we have a photo collection with slides and digital images.
