Education:

MA in history and international developmental studies and a Ph.D. in youth research from Roskilde University

Field of work and position of trust:

I am in charge of the daily management of the Centre for Youth Research along with Noemi Katznelson, who is centre director of CeFU.

Besides that, I work as a researcher and project manager on several studies focusing on young people, body- and lifestyle areas and I manage a variety of positions of trust, including:

  • Editor of the Center of Youth Research's publication 'Ungdomsliv' (Youth Life) published at Aalborg Universitetsforlag
  • Danish leader of "Men, Masculinities and Gender Equality. Exploring Masculine Subjectivities at the Margins", a Nordic research network supported by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond in Sweden
  • Boardmember at NEMM - Netværk for forskning om mænd og maskuliniteter (Network for research about men and masculinities), a national research network supported by NIKK - Nordisk Information för kundskap om kön (Nordic Information of knowledge about gender), Olso University

Field of research:

I mainly research young people, bodies and lifestyles. I am especially interested in how the changes in these relationships correspond to altered gender relations among young people, and which consequences these alterations have in the well-being of young girls and boys.

More concretely, my research consists of the following:

  • Youth
  • Youth culture
  • The developmental creation of culture among young people
  • Well-being
  • Urban life/Rural life
  • Gender
