I am an economist from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. I have held the position of CFO and been in charge of governance, economy and business management in the Norwegian Environment Agency since 2014. Through previous and current jobs I have developed a penchant and competence within economics, analytics and business management in both private and public sectors in Norway. I also have international experience from working in EEA and Norway Grants, located in Brussels, which represents Norway's contribution to reducing social and economic disparities in the European Economic Area (EEA). The Grants scheme also strengthens ties and cooperation between Norway and beneficiary countries. The basis for the Grants scheme is the EEA Agreement, which forms the foundation of Norway's cooperation with the European Union.
