My research interests are storytelling practices and knowledge production, science fiction and the posthuman. My current research revolves around science fiction as method, welfare technologies and caring futures, and posthuman ethics.

In 2020-2024, I am part of the transdisciplinary research project Caring Futures: developing care ethics for technology-mediated care practices, funded by the Norwegian Research Council. I lead a WP exploring the impact of care-robots and other technobodies as care-givers.

I am a founding member of the international collaborative research platform The Monster Network, and a steering committee member of the Nordic Network Gender, Body, Health.

At UiS, I am also a member of the research area Professional Relations and The Greenhouse - an environmental humanities initiative at UiS
