Federico Jensen

I am pursuing a double-Ph.D. degree at Copenhagen Business School, Department of Organization, and at the Sino-Danish center for education and research, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. 

My research studies the prominent role of the state on shipping and transport networks and the impact this has on power dynamics in the global economy. I am generally interested in state-capital relations and their interactions in relation to structural changes in the global economy. This project is financed by the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research.

Prior to this project, I have studied Sustainable Industrialization practices in Ethiopia, focusing on the growing apparel sector in the country, based in ‘Eco-Industrial Parks’.


Primary research areas
  • Shipping and Ports
