When I finished high school, I knew I wanted to be an engineer. I was hooked the moment I discovered polymers. This led me to study Polymer Engineering and Technology. Following college, I worked at GE Plastics analyzing polymers. After working there for about 2.5 years, I moved to the US and got a PhD in Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

While in the USA, I worked for several companies, including 3M, Berry Global, Stress Engineering Services, and Reckitt. After 15 years in the US, I moved to Norway and started my career at Norner as Senior Researcher. I research recyclable polymers, polymers in batteries, and how to utilize polymers to produce new products.

Norway is a very family-oriented country, and I often feel like it’s a country made for children. This was one our main reason for moving here. Grenland area itself is very quiet compared to the places I lived in US. I spend a lot of time in nature here, and like that nature is so easily accessible. The close connection to industry also allows me to work closely with many local customers and I get to meet so many people from different parts of Norway and even the world.

In terms of polymer research, Norner is very well positioned. It is unique to work with a company that operates so broadly in this field, spanning the complete polymer value chain. Despite working with polymers for many years, I have found that there is still so much to learn. With Norner, you'll find people with 30-40 years of experience in the field who are always willing to teach. This desire makes it easier to establish a closer relationship with those who work here and grow together as a team.
