Research Interests

I am currently employed as a researcher associated with several different projects.

I work with several projects related to international arms trade, and have published a number of reports on Norwegian arms transfer regulations, the Arms Trade Treaty process, and different aspects of the international arms trade and how it is and can be regulated. I am particularly interested in the relationship between arms trade issues and human rights.

I also work with the PRIO Gender team, primarily as the editor of the quarterly PRIO Gender, Peace and Security Newsletter, which can be found at http://www.prio.no/Research-and-Publications/Gender/Newsletter/

I am generally interested in international norm development, especially developments in international law. I am also very interested in gender studies and in studies of humanitarianism.
