Academic interests

My main research interest is youth party practices. Currently I'm working with several major data sets consisting of interviews with young people who talk about drinking and partying. I also work with theoretical papers and ethnographic and survey data. My publications are listed at the bottom of this page and here.

Over the last few years I have reviewed manuscripts for Gender & SocietyAddiction Research & Theory, Sociology of Health & Illness, Drugs: education, prevention, and policy, and Tidsskrift for ungdomsforskning.


I began working as a PhD research fellow at the University of Oslo the fall of 2014. Before that I worked a few months as a research assistant in the same department. The fall of 2013 I taught social science to social work students at Diakonhjemmet University College. I worked as a research assistant, studying nursing homes, at Norwegian Social Research from the fall of 2011 to the spring of 2013. 

I graduated with an MA in sociology from the University of Oslo the fall of 2011, with a thesis on the social aspects of alcohol hangovers. I have been an exchange student to UC Berkeley the spring of 2009 and the academic year 2010-2011, the last time on a Fulbright scholarship.
