About me

In short

I am a cognitive neuroscientist based in Oslo, Norway, and works at the Center for Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition. I’m passionate about cognitive neuroscience, using R and teaching the world the wonders of R. Doing all I can to improve gender diversity and equity in the R-community though RLadies-Oslo.
