I received my BA-degree in history from the University of Iceland in 2000, with a dissertation in the field of microhistory under the supervision of Sigurður Gylfi Magnusson. After graduation I worked on a book with a stipend from the Student Innovation Fund that was published in 2004 in the series „Anthology from Icelandic Popular Culture“, edited by Sigurður Gylfi Magnusson, Mar Jonsson and David Olafsson. The book contains essays from students of Reykjavik College from the late 19th century where they described their everyday life, their thoughts on current events and their vision of the future. The students later became officials, scholars and known political leaders. My MA-degree was in the field of policital science (University of Iceland, 2003), where I focused on social development in 19th century Iceland in comparison with the ´dominant ideology thesis´ under the supervision of Gudmundur Halfdanarson. In 2010 I started a PhD. study on the manuscript collecting of Jon Sigurdsson, Icelandic scholar and politician (1811-1879) under the supervision of Mar Jonsson, Sigurdur Gylfi Magnusson and Margret Eggertsdottir. I started working at the manuscript collection of the National and University Library of Iceland in 2003, and have been the director of the manuscript collection since 2011. The collection has over 15.000 post-medieval manuscripts, many of which have been useful in the „Icelandic school of microhistory“, namely the uses of personal documents for historical analysis. I have given lectures on various fields of post-medieval Icelandic manuscript culture, written articles on that subject in journals and books and been a board member on various Icelandic scholarly societies.
