I am an economist, particularly interested in the emerging bioeconomy.
I currently work as a researcher at the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research – NIBIO (Norsk institutt for bioøkonomi).
Co-founder of Nourishing Foods Oslo, a small company providing organic, delicious, baked goods and treats that are 100% without gluten, dairy, refined sugar, and artificial ingredients.
My PhD was on the economic effects of cognitive dissonance and mental frames with an application to cooperatives (Department of Bioresource Policy, Business & Economics at the University of Saskatchewan). I currently work on issues related to value chains, innovation and the green shift – i.e., the transformation of Norwegian economy from the old model of a fossil fuel based system to one supported by renewable resources that are fully utilized.
My research interests include industrial organization, game theory, economic psychology, cooperatives.
