Presentation

My PhD project “Between Copenhagen and Canton – a Matter of Distances” compares the proto-globalised maritime trade of the 18th century with the trade of the modern globalised world in the late 20th and early 21st century with a focus on Denmark and China.
I also work as a curator and historian at the Maritime Museum of Denmark, creating new exhibitions, answering queries, editing the museum yearbook and much more.
