I help Nordic universities and research institutes communicate complex scientific research to the general public in plain English.
I have worked with research scientists from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), and SINTEF Energy.
- Writing or editing of annual reports
- Blog/article writing
- Editing & proofreading
- Writing workshops for researchers
Gemini is an online publication in English and Norwegian that shares research news from NTNU and SINTEF.
Reveals the real greenhouse gas footprints of reservoirs – When hydropower reservoirs traps organic matter, it leads to higher local greenhouse gas emissions. But the emissions are not increased but displaced. A new tool calculates the real greenhouse gas footprints of reservoirs.
SF6: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas – The atmospheric concentration of the highly-potent greenhouse gas SF6 has never been higher. Fingers have been pointed at the expanding renewables industry, but is that a fair assessment?
In my most challenging project to date, I took responsibility for the majority of the text in the 70-page final report for the FME CenBio. This involved in-person and telephone interviews with more than 20 research scientists from across Norway and beyond to draw out the highlights from this eight-year research programme.

I wrote five feature articles for the FME BIGCCS final report. I also edited and proofread most of the other text.
Report to be published Q3 2017.
Nordics’ Glenna research cloud project underway – Researchers across the Nordic region will soon enjoy a new cloud infrastructure from which to share systems and resources and aid collaboration. Originally named the “Nordic Cloud”, Glenna – meaning “opening in the cloud” in Icelandic – is a collaboration between research councils in the five Nordic countries under the umbrella of the Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC).
