I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Department of History and Human Rights Studies at Lund University. My project, "ScanRights," examines the role of socio-economic human rights in Scandinavian diplomacy at the United Nations, 1970-2000.
My book, Reagan, Congress, and Human Rights: Contesting Morality in US Foreign Policy, will be published by Cambridge University Press in May 2020.
I am also affiliated with the research project Laying the Foundations: The League of Nations and International Law, 1919 to 1945, where I work on a biographical study of the American lawyer Manley O. Hudson.
Previously, I was a Carlsberg Foundation postdoc at Georgetown University (2017-2019) after receiving my PhD in History from the University of Southern Denmark (2017). Other past affiliations include visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, guest researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies, and HIA-Lantos Congressional Fellow in the House Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Congress. I have taught at the University of Copenhagen and the University of Southern Denmark and I frequently contribute commentary on US politics in Danish media.
