I am a PhD Fellow at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business (EGB) at CBS. My research interests are varied and generally fall under the EGB Principle Focus Area of Business and Government, and the Societal Challenges of (a) Business and Democracy, (b) Inequality, and (c) Business, Global Shifts and Policy Challenges. Current research is focused on the financing of political parties in developing states, the interaction of business and political interests, corruption and how this affects political trust. Other interest areas include the illicit economy, particularly extractive industries, and how these activities relate to public policy, governance frameworks and the formal economy.

I have an MSc and BSc in International Business and Politics from Copenhagen Business School and guest lectured for the Masters' level elective course "Re-Imagining Capitalism" run by the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy. The lecture was for a module titled: "Inclusion and Diversity: Voices from the Periphery" which considered approaches to re-imagining capitalism from the Global South and highlighted the underutilisation of indigenous knowledge in development studies. This semester, I will be teaching methods and operationalisation of concepts.
