Research areas


My research focuses on policing and security governance. Across anthropology, criminology and critical security studies, I explore topics such as:

  • Everyday policing
  • Police reform implementation
  • The role of affect in security governance and policing
  • Linkages between global security threats and local police work
  • The crime-terror nexus
  • Counterterrorism policing
  • Perceptions of safety and risk
  • The politics of policing
  • Urban violence

I have conducted long-term fieldwork with the police in Denmark and the Philippines across operational and strategic levels.

Besides being part of the Department of Anthropology at Aarhus University, I am affiliated with the Royal Danish Defence College. My PhD is part of the research project ‘Affective Prevention: Partnership Policing and the Transformation of Urban Security Governance in Denmark’, funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.
