My PhD research was funded over three years (2012-15) as a part of the Rannís funded research project, Paranormal encounters in medieval Iceland (Icel. Tekist á við yfirnáttúruna á Íslandi á miðöldum), led by principal investigator Ármann Jakobsson. My own research was focused on paranormal dreams in the Sagas about early Icelanders (Icel. Íslendingasögur).
