Welcome to my website!
I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Media Sociology at the Department of Sociology and Political Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.
My research focuses on the societal role and importance of traditional and new media. In particular, I investigate how structural circumstances (e.g., in media systems and political systems) influence communication (e.g., in media coverage or on social media) as well as how media and communication influence the society as a whole. This includes research on algorithm-based information intermediaries like Google and Facebook, their societal impact, and the chances and risks associated with them.
Since 2017, I live in Trondheim with my husband, our two sons and our Shetland pony.
