Primary fields of research

I study the role of media in everyday life and in broader societal processes and contexts. My focus is on digital media, their diffusion and usage, their communicative characteristics and interplay with other media. My research includes the following topics:

  • self-tracking and social media across personal, work and institutional domains of everyday life

  • methodological development in digital media research

  • datafication and automated decision-making, specifically personal data protection in a regulatory and ethical perspective

  • sociological media and communication theory

Current research

At the moment, I work on three interrelated projects: 

Automated decision-making - Nordic Perspectives. A nordic, interdisciplinary research network for the study of 'everyday AI' and automated decision-making in society. The network is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark, 2020-2021 and I am the PI.

Infrastructures of tracking explores cookie-based tracking of users across websites, mapping infrastructures for data flow and ownership in Denmark and the EU.

Personalizing the professional: changing genres at the work/life intersection is about how we manage and redraw the boundaries between work and personal life through changing practices of communication: blurring professional and personal communication genres, disconnecting to regulate accessibility etc. The project is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark, 2019-2022 and I am the PI.

I am a member of the research group Digital Information and Communication (DICO).
