Hello everyone!

My name is Nadine Hollmann and I’m a new PhD student in the Public Administration Section. I currently live in Copenhagen and will be moving to Aarhus in only 3 weeks. My research focuses on changes in the production of welfare. I’m particularly interested in collaborations between citizens and the public sector – also often referred to as coproduction. My PhD project focuses on why such collaborations occur and the effects of these initiatives. 
I completed my master’s degree in political science from the University of Southern Denmark in June 2020. Therefore, I’m still adjusting to all the new surroundings here at AU and might look at bit confused from time to time. During my studies at the University of Southern Denmark, I worked at the Department of Political Science for three years as teaching assistant in courses on public administration, political theory, philosophy of science and social science research methods. During my master’s degree, I also did one semester as visiting student in the Netherlands at the Utrecht School of Governance, focusing mainly on quantitative methods and coproduction from a leadership perspective.   
After finishing my master’s degree, I was affiliated at Statistics Denmark in Copenhagen working with production of national statistics/register data and doing consultancy work related to data, various research projects and sample designs.
In my spare time I enjoy long walks, winter swimming, watching the Danish series Matador with my similarly geeky friends and listening to history podcasts. My office is 1340-236 so please come by for a chat. It might help me being less AU-confused.  
I look forward to meeting everyone!
All the best,
