I am an educational researcher, mathematical physicist and science communicator. Currently, I work as a PhD researcher in the physics education group at the University of Oslo. I have developed an online learning environment about Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity and study learning processes in Einsteinian physics.
General Relativity - Why high school students should learn about Einstein's most revolutionary idea.
Despite our better knowledge, physics in schools is still taught from an outdated 19th century point of view. I think students should learn about curved space and warped time from an early age. Why? Take a look at my article on Titan.
General Relativity on Viten
Within project ReleQuant, I developed an online learning environment about general relativity targeted at upper secondary school students. In January 2018, the Norwegian Centre for Science Education launched the program on the learning platform Viten. You can find the Norwegian version of the program here.

ReleQuant develops digital learning resources in modern physics for upper secondary schools in Norway. The project was established to investigate novel ways of teaching modern physics and to study students’ learning processes.
Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity is an important pillar of modern physics and our current description of gravity. Einstein realized that there is a deep connection between gravity, space, and time.
The Einsteinian Physics Education Research (EPER) collaboration wants to teach students our most contemporary scientific understanding of the universe, while finding new ways of conducting physics education research on a global scale.
