I am a post doc researcher at the University of Oslo. My background is literature, science fiction, social sciences, technology and policy studies. I wrote my PhD on foresight and scenarios in future ICT research, and have worked in the field of digital education and as an advisor to the Minister of Government Administration and Reform on green computing. I am a member of the Academic Board of the European Journal of Futures Research (EJFR), an international platform for leading and upcoming scholarly work on possible, probable and desirable European and global futures.
My three year post doc research is on the Internet of Things and is financed by the national Research Council of Norway. I study the use of RFID in the Fashion Industry, both as a technology in supply chains, to increase efficiency and sustainability, but also as an innovative technology for alternative futures of clothing (i.e. recycling and reuse, enhance shopping experience and after sales services and events). I see clothing as a very important "thing" in the future Internet, next to food and health, which needs more technology focussed research from a social science perspective. Theoretically I work on conceptualising the future Internet through employing ideas about neural and physical connections from science fictional work of the 1980s and early 1990s.
