A little belated: Hello to all of you colleagues!

I am an Assistant Professor at the department where from January 2020, I have led my own 3-year Sapere Aude Research leader grant, funded by the Independent Research council here in Denmark  (DFF). The project is about what a theory of human kinds (or social membership) can tell us about the basis for group rights (e.g. affirmative action, minority rights). Do read more about it on our website or in this interview and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have interests in this area of research (email is probably your safest bet at the moment).

I am also a core member for the new Centre on Experimental Philosophy of Discrimination, CEPDISC (PI, Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen).

I am a trained philosopher that works on a range of topics in philosophy of science to political philosophy – and, as you can see from my current project, I am especially interested in finding a synthesis between work in different areas. 

I am Swedish-Canadian, grew up on the island of Gotland, did my BA and MA in Stockholm, PhD at King's College London and have held positions at Helsinki and Cambridge Universities before coming here.
