Personal profile


My PhD research explores the sociology of social science knowledge production in Europe, from the perspectives and practices of scholars and as it relates to European integration. My previous research analyses the gendered notion of a ‘successful’ academic at a Norwegian University, with a focus on national and institutionally affecting forms of governance within the context of a globally changing knowledge market for academia. I am particularly inspired by theories of practice and Institutional ethnography as methods for studying academics and knowledge production, in university settings and in relation to politico- bureaucratic processes at multiple scales. I hold a Master’s degree in the Anthropology of Education and Globalisation from Aarhus University, DPU and a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from SUNY Geneseo in New York.

My research interests include: European integration, politics of knowledge production, globalization of higher education, gender in academia, transnational and/or interdisciplinary collaboration, Institutional Ethnography
