I work with German philosophy in the 19th century and more specifically the contemporaneous reception of Hegel, especially the Young Hegelians. However, I am also interested in the political and institutional reception of Hegel in a socio-economic and political context. My doctoral research centres on Young Hegelianism and Karl Marx and my dissertation is about Young Hegelian continuities Capital.

My supervisor is Andreas Beck Holm, and my co-supervisors are Anders Moe Rasmussen and Michael Kuur Sørensen.
