Personlig profil

Forskning

I am on maternity leave until August 2024.

My research takes an interdisciplinary and socio-legal approach to different areas of law with a particular focus on the history and theory of international law and law and gender. I have published on issues of self-determination, decolonisation, gender inequality, labour regulation, human rights, and the political economy of international law. I currently sit on the editorial board of Feminist Legal Studies. 

My first monograph – Reckoning with Empire: Self-Determination in International Law (Brill, 2023) traces the ways in which various actors have sought to reinvent self-determination in different juridical, political, and economic iterations to create the conditions for global transformation.  

Drawing on the law and humanities tradition, my research also examines the aesthetics and spatial politics of international law. I am currently part of the research project legal sightseeing with Sofia Stolk and Renske Vos at VU University www.legalsightseeing.org

Teaching

I currently teach Retssociologi (MA) and Retssociologi, Normer og Praksis (BA); Poltical Theory, Law and Policy (MA); International Law for the Social Sciences (BA); Global Humanitarianism (MA); Legal Methods (MA) 

Education

I received my PhD in International Law from University of Copenhagen. I also hold a Masters of Law (cand.jur) from the University of Copenhagen, and a BA in Art History and LLB in Law from the University of Western Australia. 

Background

I was previously a lecturer and postdoc at Lund University, and have held visiting fellowships at the Lauterpacht Centre at Cambridge University and at the University of Toronto.
