Dummy profile picture
I'm Associate Professor of Communication and Digital Media at Copenhagen Business School. Previously I held positions at the University of Copenhagen and Aarhus and had visiting fellowships at Duke University, Cornell University, LSE and Columbia University.

My writing and teaching focus on knowledge infrastructures; infrastructures of ignorance; environmental media; and digital epistemologies. More specifically, I am interested in how media theory, cultural theory and critical theory can unpack and unfold issues related to datafication and digitization.

I’m the author of a book: The Politics of Mass Digitization published by MIT Press (2019). I’ve written several journal articles and book chapters about infrastructures of forgetting and remembering, gendered epistemologies in digital infrastructures, archival affects, small media, content moderation and care, reuse ethics, environmental media and data waste. I contribute to exhibitions and artistic research practices, too. 

I have the honour of organizing the research cluster ’Digital transformations and knowledge production’ under the ”The Digital Transformations Platform”.

I actively engage in teaching, public speaking, advisory work and other efforts to highlight the relevance of critical digital research in multiple settings.
