Academic interests

I’m currently a PhD student in computational neuroscience at the University of Oslo. I’m studying memory, learning, behavior and neurological disorders from a molecular and cellular point of view. My tools are programming, simulation, visualization and data analysis.


I am involved in the project Computing in Science Education and have been a teaching assistant in the following courses:


My background includes a bachelor in Materials Science and Nanotechnology and a Master’s degree in Computational Physics, both from the University of Oslo. In my Master’s thesis, I wrote about the challenge of simulating large numbers of atoms with high levels of accuracy. To deal with this issue, I showed how detailed calculations in quantum physics can be bridged to large-scale simulations in molecular dynamics, using artificial neural networks.
