Personal profile


I hold a MA in Journalism and English from Roskilde University, where I am now affiliated as a PhD fellow at the Department of Communication and Arts. Previously, I have worked as a journalist, English teacher, external lecturer in journalism as well as a research assistant on several media research projects.

In my PhD project, I examine the role that media (technologies) and media use play in processes, practices, understandings and experiences regarding recognition (and disrespect). My empirical focus is primarily on young people (media users), with whom I research and collaborate.

The interdisciplinary, theoretical aspiration is to combine social theoretical and social philosophical theories of recognition with media and communication research, while my methodological approach primarily draws on (digital) ethnography, action research and ideas and tools from journalism, but I also include other methods and approaches from especially media use research.
