I have taught broadly within teach science, technology, and society (STS), history of technology, environmental history, history of consumption, digital history, and other topics. Umeå University named me a Merited Teacher in April 2016. At University of Stavanger, I currently teach Early Modern European History and the “What is History?” course at the undergraduate level; a section on 3D printing for historians in the “Digital and Multimodal Histories” course and parts of the Environmental History course at the master’s level.
