Trained as a geographer, I work interdisciplinarily within, and increasingly across migration and urban studies. My intellectual curiosity has always been dominated by the question of the relation between alterity and belonging. This overarching interest has led me over the years to examine different ways and areas in and through which this relationship gets constructed, experienced or is governed, especially in Germany and in Denmark. My earlier research, focused on Germany and former eastern Berlin Marzahn in particular, examined local landscapes of belonging, migrant understanding of role of work in integration, urban encounters across difference, changing politics of citizenship and nationness, and insiderness in migration research. More recent research has addressed immigrant bloggers’s translations of Copenhagen and Danishness and scalar politics in accommodation of religious difference in Denmark. I find editorial work particularly rewarding, both in terms of edited volumes and special issues, having covered topics such the role of diversity in governance, national-urban lens in migration studies, and urban aspects of migration industries.

Currently I am working on two research projects, a funded international collaboration examining urban migrant service providers’ coping with covid19, and a long-term project on the Danish Jewry’s (post)diasporic mobility.
