  • Brief description of your expertise / expertise you are looking for:

    I am a sociologist and political communication scholar that specialize in methods of social science. Quantitative methods stand at the forefront of my research on media, political attitudes, consumption patterns, and social stratification. Extensive access to observational data made it necessary for me to pay more attention to how causal inference can be drawn using various statistical approaches. I mainly work with multilevel modeling, propensity score matching, stratification, and survey weighting, but have recently taken an interest in choice-modeling and structural equation modeling. Before becoming a researcher, I worked as a media analyst for the national public service broadcaster in Norway and for a commercial company that uses a combination of discourse analysis and quantitative content analysis to create media profiles.

  • Brief description of your project / the project you would like to join:

    The ideal project consists of a comparative dimension consisting of either media system or welfare regimes. This creates a consistent comparative framework that lays a foundation for differences in political attitudes, media usage, and cultural consumption. A theoretical framework that uses agenda-setting, a high-choice argument, news avoidance, speak of cultural omnivores or wish to revisit frameworks such as videomalaise or a virtuous circle is of particular interest. However, all projects that use media and cultural theory are of interest. The empirical standpoint should include mixed-methods and/or a survey design that aims to capture, or monitor, individuals\' attitudes and consumption patterns. Contact me for a talk!
