I am a web and internet historian, with a particular interest in the popularisation of web media during the 1990s and 2000s. Generally curious about studies of technology, culture, and the interplay between these.

I work at the National Library of Norway, facilitating research on the Norwegian Web Archive and being part of our DHlab.
