New Research Assistant

Presentation of Marie Fly Lindholt

I am a new research assistant at the Department, and I will be working on the HOPE-project with Michael Bang Petersen, Frederik Jørgensen and Alexander Bor.


On the HOPE-project, we are tracking people’s behavior and perceptions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project involves two phases. The first phase occurs during the unfolding of the pandemic, where my job is to make analyses that are disseminated to key national authorities, the media and the general public. The second phase occurs after the COVID-19 crisis and focuses on understanding and evaluating how the different strategies and events shaped the trajectory of the pandemic across different countries.


Personally, I finished my Master’s degree in Political Science from Aarhus University in April this year. My academic interests include experimental design, political psychology and public administration. As a student at the Department of Political Science, I worked as a student assistant as well as a TA in Methods II and Macro Economics.
