Roar Bakken Stovner



I try to find ways of describing and measuring teaching quality across many classrooms, especially in mathematics.

I have a special interest in meta-science, where I conduct research on how citations distort findings and give unfounded authority to claims made in educational research.

I also like programming tools for research, e.g.,


2023- Associate Professor, OsloMet

2016-2020 PhD candidate, University of Oslo
2012-2018 Teacher in lower and upper secondary schools in Oslo
2007-2012 Master of Science and Technology, NTNU. Thesis on applied computational topology.
