My experience involves nearly 35 years in the field of road transport, including some 20 years within international cooperation. I hold a Master of Science in civil engineering from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and a Doctorate in knowledge development in international settings from Middlesex University, UK.
I have been working for the Norwegian road administration for about 25 years, previously as an engineer and planner and presently as director of international cooperation. In the latter position, I am engaged in the work of several organisations in charge of research, knowledge exchange and innovation at the Nordic, European and global levels. Earlier in my career, I was involved in development cooperation in African and Asian countries working for the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation and the UN/International Labour Organization.
For the last six years, I have been conducting research on knowledge development and learning in various forms, and has contributed to the book “Informal learning, practitioner inquiry and occupational education – an epistemological perspective” (Routledge, 2021). At the same time, I have been studying philosophy (Oxford online courses). On this MSt in Practical Ethics, I have a particular interest in AI and data ethics, and climate and environment.
