I’m an Associate Professor, working at the IT University of Copenhagen, where I’m affiliated with the Digital Communication and Culture Research Group (aka C2). See more about my research under Research.
I hold a MA in Comparative Literature and Media Studies from the University of Copenhagen (1999). As part of this education, I also took a MA in Image Studies w. distinction at the University of Kent at Canterbury in 1996-1997. In 2003, I was awarded the Ph.D. title at the IT University of Copenhagen, after having defended my Ph.D. thesis titled A Poetics of Virtual Worlds.
I am born in 1970 and raised in Ringsted (Denmark) and Lilongwe (Malawi, Africa). Since 1989, I have been based in Copenhagen, with short detours during which I have lived temporarily in Canterbury (UK), Bergen (NO) and Atlanta (US). When I’m not at work, I spend time with my son (I’m a single mother by choice) and family and friends. When time allows, I sing, fool around with my Nikon camera and in general enjoy the cornucopia of cultural activities available in Copenhagen.
