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, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2020.
I am also part of 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 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). I've also been a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, a guest researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies, and a HIA-Lantos Congressional Fellow in the House Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Congress.
I frequently contribute commentary on US politics and foreign policy in Danish media.
