She joined NHH to combine and apply her five (six) associate professorship fields of expertise in a broader area, characterized by complexity, system dynamics, growth and global cooperation.

Dr. Kobbeltvedt has a broad interest in the utility of psychology, from the shaping of information via connotations, to behavior change by tax regulations.

Common for all her publications is the aim to validate and improve theoretical models for prediction of behavior.

Dr. Kobbeltvedt is inspired by the businesses in Silicon Valley  and their innovative and growth oriented spirit. With the help from her hard working master´s degree students at NHH she runs the Googleplus non-profit knowledge sharing site for readers interested in decision making psychology and management.

In the future Dr. Kobbeltvedt would focus on further digitalization of psychological content for businesses, advisory board work, and forensic judgments. She is eager to promote her field of expertise, but does not like to be the center of attention above that.
