My research has been published in journals including Policy Sciences, Journal of Common Market Studies, International Journal of Public Administration and “Politik” and in monographies and book chapters at Routledge, Edward Elgar and “Djøf Forlag”.

I work as an Associate Professor in European Public Policy. Previously, I studied political science at the University of Copenhagen (MA 2008) and worked as a civil servant for Copenhagen City and the Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs (2008-2010). I hold a PhD from Roskilde University (2014).
