Christina has previously worked as a legal practitioner in Germany. From September 2002 until December 2008, she was lecturer and research fellow at the Department of Public and International Law, University of Oslo. In 2009 and 2010, she worked for the Norwegian government as lead negotiator on REDD (Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries) in the UN climate negotiations. Christina still works as legal consultant for the Norwegian Ministry of the Environment and several governmental and non-governmental organisations.

She is currently on the Steering Committee of "The Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order" (Pluricourts) research project, awarded Centre of Excellence Status, where she is project coordinator for the environmental sector. She also is a founding member of the research groups on ‘Natural Resources Law’ and ‘International Relations’. Christina is Academic Coordinator of International Affairs at the Faculty of Law, member of the Law Faculty’s Council for Researcher Education (PFF) and board member of the University of Oslo – Energy Initiative.

She is the country editor of Retfærd (Nordic Journal of Law and Justice) and member of the editorial board of the Journal of Human Rights and the Environment and Resource Management Theory & Practice as well as member of the Global Network for the Study of Human Rights and the Environment.

Christina has two little sons and enjoys outdoor activities with her family, such as sailing, hiking and skiing.
