Research

I graduated from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in June 2007 with a master’s degree in political science. Currently I work at TNS Gallup with opinion and market research projects for clients in the public and private sector, among other things on public opinion towards climate change. Below is my master’s thesis and some other publications.
