I’m Associate Professor in Media and Design at Volda University College, Norway. I teach in the areas of media design and web documentary. Between 2011 and 2015 I worked as Assistant Professor at University of Canberra, where I taught sustainable design and media production.
I have worked with media production (web and audiovisual) for more than 18 years. I’m also a video artist with work exhibited in Bremen, Bergen, San Diego, Barcelona, Florence, Paris, Madrid, Panama, San Jose, Buenos Aires, Baja California and Havana.
My PhD at University of Bergen, Norway, was a study of the inclusion of diverse audiences in representations of identity and history in Panama. I developed a digital game about Panamanian contemporary history, which was installed at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Panama, and at the Museum of Art and Design, Costa Rica. This work is discussed in her book ‘Panamanian Museums and Historical Memory’ (Berghahn Books, Oxford). My second book, ‘Museum Websites and Social Media’ (Berghahn Books, Oxford and New York) deals with the use of new technologies and social media in museums, and focuses on issues of sustainability, trust and diversity.
