Background: Doctoral research fellow at Molde University College, Specialized University in Logistics (MUC) – Faculty of Logistics. I hold a Master of Science degree (cand.scient) within Informatics from University of Bergen. For the last 25 years, I have held several ICT management positions in industry and public service, among them, 15 years as Group IT Manager at Glamox AS, and 8 years as IT Manager at Molde University College.

Title of my PhD Thesis: «From waste to circularity in e-waste handling: Manufacturer’s view». My supervisors are Professor Bjørn Jæger and Professor Lise Lillebrygfjeld Halse.

Description of my PhD project: Originally the PhD project is a part of the research project Manufacturing Network 4.0. This was a four-year competence project, funded by the participating companies and by the Norwegian Research Council's user-driven Research based Innovation (BIA). My project was linked to the projects work package 4, Collaborative planning and control in supply chains. The PhD project try to address how manufacturers can support the increased circularity focus in products by extended use of digital technology. The forward and reverse supply chain of electric and electronic equipment and e-waste has been studied.

Research stay abroad. In 2022 I was on a research stay at RISE institute, University of Brescia studying how digital technology affects the transition to circular economy and visa versa. The research had specifically focus on the relationship between enterprise information systems and circular economy, seen from a manufacturer's point of view.
