I am a PhD student in physics at the University in Bielefeld, Germany. I hold a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Oslo (UiO) and have a M.Sc in Chemistry from Bielefeld. The topic for my PhD is super-resolution microscopy, more specifically (direct) Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (dSTORM).
When not drooling over equations I tend to do a multiple of activities, usually in music, sports or politics.
I have played the saxophone (alt, tenor and bary) since I was 9 years old, and have recently been playing with the Student Orchestra Biørneblæs at the Faculty of Nature Science at the UiO. Autumn 2013 I was the Leader for Musical Activities (conductor).
When I have the spare energy to move my body further than between the apartment and the university, I go for long runs (ca. 10 km) in the woods nearby, often together with the running team at the university.
In 2010 I began volunteering for the Norwegian Green Youth and later the Norwegian Green Party as well as the Green Students. I have held various levels of responsibilites for them, but for the moment hold but a few.
