My research focuses on the role of digital media, digital data and methods for political contention, protest, activism, racism, civic engagement, social movements and more broadly political communication. My most recent publications include the co-edited volume (with Mette Mortensen and Thomas Poell) Social Media Materialities and Protest published by Routledge in 2019. I am vice-chair of the Communication and Democracy section at ECREA (European Communication Research and Education Association). Before joining the Department of Communication at University of Copenhagen, I was Associate Professor in Digital Media and Communication at the Digital Design Department at the IT University of Copenhagen.
