I am Assistant Professor of Political Science at the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen. I defended my doctoral dissertation in May 2016. Before starting my current position, I was a postdoctoral researcher on the Digital Disinformation project.
My educational background is also in political science, and before entering academia, I worked for a few years at Denmark's Ministry of Finance. My background is outlined in more detail in my curriculum vitae.
Aside from my academic research my main interests are American and Danish politics, playing around with data in R, good food, and English football. I live in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, with my two favorite people: my wife Ida and our daughter Nora.
