I am an associate professor at The Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS) and the Department of Anthropology, where I research and teach on topics related to disasters, climate change adaptation, data ethics, and mixed digital methods.

I am part of the team on the ERC funded project DISTRACT - The Political Economy of Distraction in Digitized Denmark, where I am also vice-PI and project coordinator. 

Another strand of my research examines how disasters shape societies and communities. I am PI on the project Coastal Conflicts, funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark (DFF), which maps the characteristics and dynamics of disagreements about coastal and storm surge protection measures in Denmark. I was also part of an appointed research network on RealDania's campaign "Cities and the Rising Sea", which supports Danish municipalities work on storm surge management.

I have previously conducted fieldwor in Central Europe (Germany) on post-flooding adaptation, as well as in the South Pacific (Fiji) on the epistemic cultures of disaster management experts. I have been a part of the interdisciplinary project Changing Disasters and I am a member of the Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research (COPE).

From 2017 to 2018, I was as a postdoc on the ESPRESSO project (Enhancing synergies for disaster prevention in the European Union), which focused on optimizing policies within disaster prevention and climate adaptation in the EU member states.

I am the co-coordinator of the DICAN network (Disaster and Crisis Anthropology Network), a network under the EASA (European Association of Social Anthropology).
