Welcome to my webpage. I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Copenhagen. I am also a Visiting Senior Fellow in the Department of Psychological and Behaviourial Science at the London School of Economics and Political Science. In Fall 2023, I was a Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Cornell University and I spent Winter, 2024, at the Department of Comparative Human Development at the University of Chicago. 

I am a cultural psychologist, with expertise in social and political psychology and mixed qualitative and quantitative research methodologies.


Before coming to Copenhagen, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago, where I also did my Ph.D. in the Department of Comparative Human Development. I have an M.Phil. in Social and Developmental Psychology from the University of Cambridge and a B.Sc. in Applied Psychology from University College Cork. 


Please feel free to read about my research, access my publications, and hear about upcoming projects.


If you would like me to give a talk at your institution, please send me an email.


I am always happy for prospective students and collaborators to reach out. You can view an updated version of my C.V. here.
