Research Professor at Vestlandsforsking / Western Norway Research Institute
I have a doctoral degree in Humanistic Informatics (2003) from University of Bergen, with the thesis The power of discourse – the freedom of individuals: Gendered positions in the discourse of computing. My main research interests are in computer technology and gender, identity and culture, computer history, computer education, computer games and welfare technology.
Among my publications are the monograph Gender-Technology Relations: Exploring Stability and Change (Palgrave Macmillan 2011) and the co-edited anthology Digital Culture, Play, and Identity: A World of Warcraft® Reader (MIT Press, 2008).
Since 1998 I have worked at Humanistic Informatics and later Digital Culture at University of Bergen as PhD Fellow, Postdoc and later Associate Professor. Since July 2016 I have had my main position at Vestlandsforsking / Western Norway Research Institute where I am currently Research Professor in “Technology and Society”, Head of research for the same group, and leading the research group for Gender, Diversity and Technology.
