Personal profile

Research areas

I am Assistant Professor at the Center for War Studies, Department of Political Science and Public Management, University of Southern Denmark. I work currently primarily as Senior Researcher in the European Research Council (ERC) project AutoNorms (2020-2025) https://www.autonorms.eu/.

From 2016 to 2020, I was Post-Doctoral Researcher at the School of Politics and International Relations, University of Kent.

My research combines an interest in norms in International Relations with perspectives on technologies in politics. I am especially interested in the implications of emerging autonomous weapons systems. My primary theoretical background is Foucault’s governmentality, but I am broadly interested in IR theory and constructivist/poststructural studies in IR in the fields of security studies, European Union external relations, as well as global governing in general. 

I have published on these research themes in journals such as International Political Sociology, International Theory, Journal of International Relations and Development, and Review of International Studies. I am also co-author of Autonomous Weapons Systems and International Norms (McGill-Queen’s University Press, forthcoming 2021 with Ingvild Bode).
