Hi everyone,

My name is Kristoffer, and I just started as a research assistant here at the department. Having finished my master’s degree in political science here at AU last year, I am now very excited to be back at the department.

As a research assistant I am going to work for Lasse Lindekilde on the STANDBYCOMMS-project, where we will study how to get people to intervene when they encounter hostile behaviour on social media. The overall aim of the project is to reduce political hostility in social media debates. I am looking forward to contributing to this exciting and important task.

Outside of work I spend most of my time engaging in sports, from playing football and padel to crunching numbers and stats in order to beat friends in different kinds of fantasy sports.

Feel free to drop by my office (1331 – 315) anytime for a chat about everything from online hostility interventions to who to captain for the upcoming gameweek in Fantasy Premier League. I look forward to meeting you all and learning about your research.
