Master of Science and Technology introduced to teaching through the Teach First Norway teacher preparation programme. I have taught in lower and upper secondary schools since 2012 and have had positions as Head of Year and Head of Mathematics . In 2015/2016 I completed a year of studies in School Leadership at the BI School of Business.

Master's degree in mathematics on topological methods for data analysis:
