I am Associate Professor at the Centre for Journalism, Department of Political Science, University of Southern Denmark. I am also part of the Digital Democracy Centre (DDC) and an Excellence Fellow in the Talent Track at the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences. I have previously been Affiliated Researcher at Department of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMG), University of Gothenburg, and Visiting Researcher at Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR).

I do research on the role of the news media in democracy, with a focus on people’s news media consumption and its consequences for their political knowledge, beliefs, and engagement. Currently, I am engaged with topics such as news avoidance, trust in the news media, and use of alternative news. I have also done research on news repertoires, slow news, soft news, exemplars in the news, news deserts, and methodological issues.
