I'm a neuroscientist with a degree in neuroscience. I did a BSc in neuroscience at Otago University in New Zealand, an MSc in neuroscience from Oxford University, and Dr. Philos. in Moserlaben at NTNU in Trondheim.
In the Moser lab I worked on the grid cell system together with my partner Hanne Stensola. We showed that the grid system consists of a few functionally separate modules, and showed how their spatial activity is geometrically anchored to the outside world.
As a postdoctoral fellow in Lisbon, the focus shifted to sensory processes, and how internally generated activity controls perception. In this work, much focus was on behavioral paradigms and we developed a new virtual environment for mice. Our work was mainly on the olfactory system.
In 2021, Hanne Stensola and I started neuroscience research at UiA in Kristiansand. Our lab will further study the cross-section between sensory impressions and the brain's own expressions.
