I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Sociology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. I presently conduct research in the fields of environmental and political sociology. More specifically, I develop and carry through a survey targeted at mapping the different regimes of civic engagement in the development of green cities among the Danish population.

My previous research has been in the field of economic thinking in the European Union and its genealogy. In my recently finished postdoctoral research project (funded by the Gerda Henkel Foundation) I analysed the inspiration drawn by early German ordoliberalism from interwar ‘order theology’. The aim was to enrich our understanding of ordoliberalism – in particular with regards to the concept of ‘order’ – which remains an influential tradition of political and economic thinking in Europe up till this day.

I defended my PhD in Sociology in November 2016 at Sciences Po, Paris, where I was affiliated with the MaxPo Center. My PhD dissertation analyses the conception of the market underlying processes of European financial market integration, and how contradictions inherent to that conception structure controversies around integration processes. Specifically, I study the integration of financial infrastructures in Europe since the introduction of the euro (payment and settlement systems, notably Target2 Securities).

Throughout past and present research, I have sought to develop the notion of ‘problem analysis’ as a way of understanding conflicts (social, political, organisational or other) as processes of questions and answers.
