I am a PhD candidate in environmental humanities affiliated with the Greenhouse at the University of Stavanger. My research explores how museum practices and heritage management shape human understandings of nature. I hold a B.A. in history of ideas and an M.A. in sustainable heritage management from Aarhus University, during which I examined heritage practices in the U.S. Virgin Islands through contemporary uses of fragmented European ceramics.
I am currently working with the research project Beyond Dodos and Dinosaurs: Displaying Extinction and Recovery in Museums led by Professor Dolly Jørgensen financed by the Norwegian Research Council. My focus is on the display of extinct island species through the lens of coloniality and narrative-building of mass extinction.
I also work as an assistant with the Greenhouse - an environmental humanities initiative - at UiS as well as the editorial assistant for Environmental Humanities. I have worked with museums such as the Women's Museum in Denmark and Moesgaard Museum as well as the U.S. National Park Service at St Croix, the USVI.
