My academic background is within literature, sociology and language psychology. In addition, I hold an MA in Journalism from Goldsmiths, University of London. I have also studied and taught creative writing at the Academy of Creative Writing (Forfatterskolen) in Copenhagen and worked as a translator and editor. My PhD research centres on the study of coloniality, literature and cultural heritage in historical and contemporary media environments. Alongside my research, and in collaboration with artists and IT-scholars, I am also involved in establishing the digital humanities colonial heritage prototype website and app available at mappingacolony.org.
