I received my BA and MA in Linguistics at Aarhus University, and have also completed the basic training of the Danish Sign Language interpreter programme at Center for Sign Language, University College Copenhagen. Furthermore I was the initiator and main editor of the volume 'Sign Languages of the World - A Comparative Handbook'. I have also been a guest lecturer and censor at Centre for Sign Language, University College Copenhagen.
I have been a member of the board of the Danish Sign Language Committee, which has been working towards the official recognition of Danish Sign Language (DSL was officially recognized in May 2014).
For my PhD thesis, I am writing about the phonetics and phonology of dansk tegnsprog (DTS).
