Research areas

With a background in Anthropology and Ethnography (PhD from Aarhus University 2010), my research approach is to investigate how digital technologies attain and inform value(s) and meaning(s) in various parts of social and cultural life (including political, economic and organisational). Currently I am conducting two research projects focusing on the value and meaning of climate data in different contexts. The one is a DFF-Sapere Aude project called SOCCAR ('Sociocultural Carbon' - https://blogit.itu.dk/soccar/), which pursues the societal and cultural transformation driven by digital CO2-data as value form, and the other the DFF-funded research project 'Making Sense of Urban Air' about different definitions of 'air quality'.

Previously I have worked with state, government and leadership ideals in Papua New Guinea in the western Pacific, and with electoral technologies and their management in Denmark.
