Præsentation

I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Business Humanities and Law, Copenhagen Business School. My research sits at the intersection of Sociolegal Studies and Global Governance, with focus on international organizations and legal bodies, experts and knowledge production in trans- and international law, law and political economy, and law and gender. I often deploy multi-sited ethnographic methods in tracking how global policy processes are developed and structured. I have been a visiting researcher at Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, Melbourne Law School at University of Melbourne, the Kosovar Institute for Policy Research and Development in Pristina, Freie Universität Berlin, and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

I co-direct the Law and Political Economy Collaborative Research Network at the Law and Society Association (LSA) and chair the European International Studies Association’s (EISA) Global Law and Politics section. I have worked as a consultant for the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Higher Education and Science, and the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I am also a member of the editorial board of Journal of Law and Political Economy.

I have edited The Politics of Translation in International Relations (Palgrave) and recently published on the global care economy in Transnational Legal Theory, legal affordances in the platform economy in Environment and Planning A, and law and translation in Australian Feminist Law Journal.
