My research focuses on political behavior and party politics. Substantively, my current research focuses especially on responses to anti-immigration politics, including how citizens and political elites react to and work to (de)legitimize anti-immigration movements.
Methodologically I am especially interested in using unstructured data such as text, tweets, or online metadata to study politics. In addition to my position at the Department of Political Science, I am affiliated with the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS).
My main non-academic interests are American and Danish politics, playing around with data in R, good food, and football. I live in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, with my two favorite people: my wife Ida and our daughter Nora.
