My research is focussed on the way economic ideas gain influence in the policy world, and how relations of power, networks and social forces are shaping the way we conceive the economy.

I hold a MSc. in Economic history from London School of Economics, a cand.scient.pol in Political Science from University of Copenhagen, and a BA in History of Ideas and Sociology from Aarhus University. Before going down the academic road I worked as political advisor in the Danish Parliament.
