Personal profile

Research areas

I am currently working on my PhD project which explores the needs of newly arrived refugees in the initial period after resettling in a Danish municipality focusing on overall well-being. Moreover, I investigate the ways in which the Danish public system understand, detect, consider, and follow up on mental health needs of newly arrived citizens. consider the mental health ’s attempts to meet these needs, and how the new citizens perceive these efforts.  The project follows the pathways of 6-8 newly resettled citizens in Copenhagen and Aalborg, encompassing qualitative in-depth interviews with them as well as with public service professionals.

The project is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark
