In 2000, she became an editorial advisor at the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research – Oslo. This position allowed her to view researchers and the writing process from close quarters. She found that language was seldom the main explanation for what was going wrong, and developed a workshop for academics that focused on developing awareness of audience, honing the core argument, and structuring the story. As a workshop facilitator, she has helped researchers both in Norway and abroad hone their arguments and tailor their work for publication.
In 2008, she became a special advisor at the Peace Research Institute Oslo, and continues to develop her expertise in how to support scholars through the writing process. With an undergraduate degree in women’s studies from the University of California at Berkeley and a graduate degree in political science from the University of Oslo, she is currently pursuing a doctorate from the Institute of Education, University of London, that focuses on research productivity, academic writing, and gender gaps in academia.
