I have a BA and MA in Philosophy from the University of Copenhagen, where I focused on an eclectic combination of cultural studies, anthropology, digital methods, STS and philosophy of science & technology. Since graduating from there I helped start the ETHOS Lab at ITU, shaping it as an experimental space for thinking about and working with data, digital methods and public-private partnerships. In January 2017 I joined the Data as Relation research project as a PhD Fellow, and I defended my dissertation entitled "Speculative Relations: Data and Digitalization Work in the Danish Public-Private Tech Sector" in October 2020.

As a Postdoc in TiP and the Business IT Department I teach and pursue research related to the political economy of digitalization and tech, data visualization, speculative design, data and more.
