Personal profile


I'm Associate Professor of Public Administration and Politics at the Department of Social Sciences and Business, where I'm a part of the research group Roskilde School of Governance (RSG) and the Centre for Research on Public-Private Collaboration (COPS).

My research revolves around several topics, but the common heading is public-private collaboration. I am especially interested in how public-private collaboration influences such outcomes as quality and innovation in public services and how public-private collaboration is organized and governed. My research specifically focuses on public-private innovation partnerships, public purchasing, privatization and the voucher model.

I use both quantitative and qualitative methods to collect and analyze data, especially surveys, administrative data and interviews. I have extensive experience with systematic literature reviews as well.


I am the subject coordinator for Social Science Methods for Humanities, Practical Statistics and the introductory course Quantitative Methods. I also teach quantitative methods at bachelor's and master's level and the elective courses 'Evidence and Performance Measurement' and 'Marketization of the public sector, which are offered on a regular basis at the Master's in Public Administration and Politics.
