Tenure Track Assistant Professor
Øster Farimagsgade 5
1353 København K
I study politics on social media and political communication during international conflict. I use methods from computational social science to explore topics in political sociology, political communication, and international relations.
My research is focused on:
- Disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda
- Online censorship
- Hybrid warfare and information warfare
- Russian and Ukrainian politics
- Social networks
I am a coordinator for the “Hub on mis-/disinformation” and a member of the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS).
I wrote my PhD thesis on pro-Kremlin disinformation on social media as a part of the Digital Disinformation project, funded by the Carlsberg Foundation. My current research is part of the DIPLOFACE project, directed by Rebecca Adler-Nissen. I was a visiting scholar at New York University’s SMAPP lab, where I carried out research on Russian interference in US elections. I have also stayed at Waseda University as a research fellow and Tokyo University as a visiting student.
I have previously designed and taught seminar courses, respectively titled 'Propaganda and Disinformation on Social Media' and 'Social Network Analysis'. I have co-taught Advanced Social Data Science I and I will co-teach Digital Methods – both as part of the new MSc program in Social Data Science.
Office hours: Tuesdays 15:15-16:15
