I have a background in international business communication and human resource management from the University of Southern Denmark. I completed my PhD within the fields of gender and higher education studies at the Danish Centre for Studies in Research and Research Policy, Aarhus University, with a 5-month stint as Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Northeastern University in Boston, USA.

Generally, my research centers around issues of diversity, inequalities and change interventions in universities, as well as gender and power dynamics in knowledge production. The concept ‘postfeminism’ is a recurrent theoretical backdrop of my work. I employ qualitative-interpretivist methods anchored in feminist epistemological traditions.

Currently, my research interests include singlehood and international mobility of scholars, ‘social safety’ policy work at Dutch universities, and the affective implications of universities’ (mis)use of student evaluations of teaching.

My 'citizenship' activities include membership of the Radboud Social Science Faculty's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee, membership of the editorial board of the Dutch journal for gender studies (Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies), as well as membership of the board of the Danish Association for Gender Studies.

In addition to my teaching activities at Radboud University within topics of diversity, inequalities, organizations and qualitative methods, I have teaching experience from three Danish universities in topics such as organizations, work life and identity, organizational communication, philosophy of science, and ethnographic methods.
