I am Assistant Professor at the Centre for Journalism, Department of Political Science, University of Southern Denmark, and Affiliated Researcher at the Department of Journalism, Media and Communication, University of Gothenburg.

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