Background and academic interests
2015, Bachelor of Physics, University of Oslo
2017, Master of theoretical physics, University of Oslo
2018, Practical Pedagogical Education, University of Oslo
2019, Teach First graduate, Osloskolen
I hold a master of theoretical physics from the University of Oslo from 2017. In addition, I have worked as a teacher of mathematics and physics in high school from 2017-2019 through the leadership development program Teach First Norway
My interest is in physics is largely centered around theoretical, statistical and computational physics. In addition, I am heavily invested in the teaching of physics and, in particular, finding new and clear ways of presenting abstract ideas.
