    Since April 2021, I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher in the research project 'Who are We?', with Dan Zahavi as Principal Investigator. Previously, I completed a PhD programme at the University of Copenhagen with a thesis on 'Second-Person Relations and the We. Perspective from Phenomenology and Dialogical Philosophy'.


    Current research

    In my research, I try to understand how members of a social group relate to each other when adopting a we-perspective. In particular, I am interested in the role that different recognitional practices play in affording a sense of 'us', of being part of a 'We'. I am drawing on resources offered by classical phenomenology, critical social theory and social psychology.



    In spring 2022 I am co-teaching in the following courses:

    • Research Topic on 'Identity' (MA course) 
    • Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind – 'Philosophy of sociality. Core concepts and contemporary challenges' (MA course)

    I am supervising BA- and MA-projects in phenomenology and social philosophy.
