Functional areas of responsibility include Research Policy, Open Science, Responsible Research Evaluation, Scholarly Communication, Publication strategies, and digital researcher profiles. In addition, I advise on policy and program offerings, give lectures, supervise, and provide research support on these topics.
I am a passionate advocate of transparency in science and responsible research evaluation.
I have been working in Research Administration since 2015. Prior to that I spent close to 20 years in different libraries as Librarian, Project Manager, Service Development Coordinator and Manager of Digital Library Services.
I have held a number of projects in the areas of Open Access, service development, research assessment and research information and have spoken on these and many other RMA related subjects, for various sector bodies and events.
I have served on several national committees, project boards and working groups.
I have been actively involved in a range of training, talks and numerous conferences and workshops at local-, national- and international level including EARMA, NARMA, INORMS, MUNIN, PUBMET, Annual conference on doctoral education in Norway.
I am Deputy Chair of INORMS Research Evaluation Group https://inorms.net/research-evaluation-group/. This is an international initiative working on how best to ensure that research evaluations are meaningful, responsible and effective.
I am a member of “European Association of Research Managers and Administrators” (EARMA), https://earma.org/, ACPC "Annual Conference Program Committee" from 2021.
I am part of the INORMS Working group. The group brings together research management societies and associations from across the globe.
I was Deputy Chair of “Norwegian Network for Administration and Research Management” (NARMA) 2018-2022, and was a Board member of NARMA 2015-2022. I established and championed the ‘NARMA Research Evaluation’ and the ‘NARMA Open Science’ Special Interest Groups.
