Job titleAvdelingsdirektør
BioSince 2010 I have worked as Deputy Director General in the Research Department of the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.
 
Before joining the Ministry I worked as a researcher at Telenor R&D, the Univerisity of Oslo, Norsk Regnesentral, Åbo Akademi University, Linköping University and Aarhus University.  
 
My transition from research to public administration was very much inspired by four years as head of the ICT department in the Norwegian directorate for public management (Statskonsult).

Before studying computer science, I worked as a computer operator at CERN and at Rikstrygdeverket.
