PhD candidate and senior adviser at the Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre (NBIC, Artsdatabanken in Norwegian).
- Developing distribution models based on occurrence-only data
- Improving user knowledge using machine learning for better data collection
- Creating new data collection methods using machine learning
Working for the NBIC since 2012, my main focus in recent years has been open data licensing and sharing, as well as the collection and presentation of expert knowledge. I’m a proud node member of GBIF Norway and the Species Online team at NBIC, where I continue to work on identification keys as a developer/data wrangler. Professionally and privately, citizen science is one of my greatest interests.
My position as a PhD candidate is funded through the Public sector Ph.D.-scheme of the Research Council of Norway. My supervisors are Snorre Henriksen (NBIC), Anders Finstad (NTNU), Erlend Nilsen (NINA), Bob O’Hara (CBD) and Vidar Grøtan (CBD).
