Personal profile

Research areas

My main areas of research are phenomenology and practical philosophy, including metaethics, professional and practical competence and sensibility, value, wellbeing and welfare, processes of learning, emotion and feeling, pedagogical ethics, and critical theory. I am currently part of the research project Elderly Wellbeing and Alcohol: A Tricky Cocktail, Velux. I am developing a theory of wellbeing sensitivity in care work as well as a process-oriented and existentially focused theory of the good life for elders.I am also finishing a book project: Etiske færdigheder i pædagogisk praksis, on pedagogical ethics, focusing on bottom-up analyses of practical capacities crucial to the ethical perspective.
