Academic interests

Geomatics, especially GIS and cartography. Additionally, I prefer a bit of scripting, programming and batching (sql, python, vba and good old bat files. I'm bat girl.) Prefer open source software like QGIS and PostgreSQL, but may use ArcGIS if it is desirable. Shape and color are important - what's the point with maps if they do not serve the purpose?

Map to the people; I recommend using more maps in reports to view occurrences and statistics. Table, chart or map? Why not all three, or two of them. Making a good chart or a good table can largely follow many of the same principles for making a good map.

I'm happy to assist colleagues and students with geomatics-related tasks, such as obtaining geographic data, making maps (simple, atlas), GIS analyzes, automating production lines a.o.

On occasion, I also give internal QGIS courses (some are advertised here on the GEco page).


Assist with some GIS teaching, data preparation, SW and field-PC in courses (BIO4115 and BIO4120) at UiO.
Lectures in GMFO120 Photogrammetry 1 at NMBU.


Master of Geomatics from NMBU (formerly NLH). Research assistant and phd-studies at NMBU.
14 years as a GIS employee at NIBIO (formerly NIJOS and Skog og landskap).
I have worked on various aid projects in Serbia, Bosnia, Kosovo and South Sudan.
