Personal profile

Research interests

My overall research interests revolve around gender equality and minority participation. For about the past decade, I have in particular specialised in connections between female outmigration from remote and rural areas, gender seggregation in the labour market and ineqaulities in access to jobs and education opportunities. Lately, I have also - as an extension of this - turned my attention to island studies, as islands often pose interesting examples of such processes. Starting in September 2022, I am employed by the Danish Veterans' Centre (part of the Danish Armed Forces) specifically to study the experiences of female veterans in the Danish Defence during deployments abroad.
