Postdoctoral Scholar, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention
BioI am a postdoctoral fellow at the meta-research and innovation center at Stanford, METRICS, with a focus on the validity of meta-analysis and other methodologies, particularly within social science.
I completed a PhD in Economics at the University of Bergen in 2022, where my dissertation was focused on bias in meta-analysis. In addition to meta-analysis, my work is related to testing and advancing methods and practices to achieve a higher level of generalizability, robustness and reproducibility in scientific work.
