I am an associate professor of art history and museology. In my art historical research I focus on sculpture analysis, materiality theory, the use of new technology in contemporary art and art in the public space. In my museological research I am particularly interested in audience research, the use of digital technology in museum communication and gender and museums . I am the head of the Center for Museology and a member of the Museological Research Program: https://cc.au.dk/en/research/research-programmes/research-programme-in-museology/
