Ongoing Projects


PhD-candiate working on the Norwegian Research Council research project PHOTOFAKE. Here, I research new, technical camera-based practices and their potential for disinformation.

I have worked extensively with new and emerging forms of media media over the last decade, especially user generated content (UGC) and its role and use in traditional media. I published the book "Digital Source Criticism" [Digital kildekritikk] on Gyldendal in 2021.
