Personal profile


I'm a political economist. 

Current projects: 

I'm the Danish PI for the UNWIST project (EU Horizon), which seeks to explore the links between electoral politics/voting and gender. 

I'm PI for the JUSTMEAT project (DFF), which seeks to map the drivers and barriers of a just green transition in the Danish pig-meat sector. 

I'm the Danish research node in the NORDSPACE project (Norwegian Research Council), which seeks to explore the politics and political economy of space exploration in the Nordic countries. 

Other interests include e.g: 

I have a long standing research interest in corporate governance and company law developments, and am part of an ETUI expert group on corporate governance. 

I'm engaged in projects and discussions of the intersections of political economy and science fiction/future imaginaries. 

I am also an academic activist with Scientist Rebellion




I hold a PhD in Political Science from the Department of Political Science at the VU University Amsterdam. After finishing my PhD I have been working there as Assistant Professor International Relations before coming to RUC in 2011.  

My academic education background is broadly in the social sciences. I have an MA in International Political Economy from the University of Newcastle (2003, with distinction). Prior to this I have studied politics, history and English at the University of Freiburg. 


I teach a wide range of courses, within Global Studies, Political Economy, International Relations, EU politics and political/social science more broadly.

Specific courses include e.g. Global Political Economy, International Politics, International Public Economics, Labour in the Global Political Economy, Gendering Global Studies, Interview methods, Philosophy of Social Science, Analytical Strategies in Social Science, Crises in the Eurozone, the voluntary German language profile at RUC etc. I was also the convenor of the summer school Repoliticising Capitalism at RUC. 

I am happy to supervise BA and MA projects in the areas of Global Political Economy, International Relations and European Integration. 

I would also be interested in supervising PhD projects focusing on e.g. 

  • ecological economics; political economy of green transition 
  • corporate governance and corporate accountability
  • transnational corporations, regulation and the state
  • critical political economy perspectives on European integration 
  • the role of experts in the policy-making process
  • (organised) labour and European integration 
  • imaginaries of capitalism and alternatives to capitalism
