As a Master of Philosophy in Health Promotion, graduated from the University of Bergen, Norway, I am conducting research on international, national, and local policies to promote health and health equity. My diploma thesis on German policies (http://edoc2.bibliothek.uni-halle.de/lssaoams/content/titleinfo/25168) and my master thesis on Norwegian policies (https://bora.uib.no/handle/1956/5871) were both published and can be accessed freely.
I joined the IUHPE in 2010 and have been an active ISECN member since spring 2011. As the Technical Development Coordinator of ISECN I contribute to the development of the ISECN website and am responsible for its further technical progress. In addition, I am member of the Editorial Board for the monthly ISECN newsletter “Health Promotion Connection”.
I am particularly interested in European, national and local public health- and health promotion policies. Key aspects of my work include perspectives on health, equity, inclusion, poverty reduction, policy implementation, (new) public management, and street level bureaucracy.
