I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at the Oskar Klein Centre in Stockholm, Sweden, where I work with Prof. Claes Fransson and the larger intermediate Palomar Transient Factory group. My position is joint with the Caltech Astronomy department, where I stayed between September 2015-March 2017 working with Prof. Mansi Kasliwal.
I completed my PhD at Harvard University in 2015, supervised by Prof. Edo Berger. My thesis work focused on the properties and environments of superluminous supernovae, mainly from the Pan-STARRS1 Medium Deep Survey.
I did my undergraduate work at Princeton University, majoring in Astrophysical Sciences with a certificate in Applied and Computational Mathematics. I was fortunate to attend Princeton as a Davis United World College Scholar, after spending the last two years of high school at Waterford Kamhlaba UWC in Swaziland.
I am originally from Heggenes, Norway.
