🌍 Work

I am Head of Analytics at Earth Security where I work on the development of analytical tools and evidence-based insights to advance financing in nature-based solutions to climate change at scale. I am experienced in creating data-driven solutions to tackle research questions and I generally enjoy working with data in different shapes and forms. Before joining Earth Security, I was a Lecturer at the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent and affiliated with the Kent Q-Step Centre. I am currently also Senior Scientific Adviser at the Conflict Analysis Research Centre at the University of Kent.

I have a PhD in Political Science from the Department of Political Science and Public Management at the University of Southern Denmark. During my PhD, I spent a year as a visiting scholar at Department of Political Science at Duke University. I have taught several classes in relation to statistics and politics. For some of my teaching material and other resources that might be useful, see ‘Resources‘. My research is primarily published in journals related to political science, psychology and sociology. For information on my publications, see ‘Publications‘.
