Research areas


My research focuses on migration, diaspora, globalisation and international relations in relation to China and the impact in general of mobility and especially in regard to cultural identities. I am interested in the consequences of China's diaspora policies and their impact on transnational relations. In addition, I do research on Chinese diplomacy expressed on social media as Twitter based on big data analyis. I am also engaged in research on how to strengthen intercultural competence and communication in relation to the globalisation of Danish companies.  

My research interests are reflected in my teaching activities within the field of migration studies and interculturalism. I am presently engaged in developing new teaching modules on intercultural competencies. Intercultural skills are important for all students in their future working lives. I am very interested in developing digital teaching formats that can support student motivation and enhance learning.
