PhD student at Center for Information and Bubble Studies (CIBS), University of Copenhagen. Coordinator for the Philosophy of Economics Working Group at Yonug Sholar's Initiative, Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET).

My PhD project studies the environment for political opinion formation that is the result of the digitized media world.
