Personal profile


Historian of Ideas and Science (M.Sc.) with peer-reviewed publications on scientist's uses of the past (2020), science expeditions (2021), gender (2020), and the history of climate science.

Currently part of the Centre for the Rise of Science and Fiction and a ph.d.-student in the VELUX-funded project "Rise of Science and Fiction during the Danish Enlightenment". My research investigates the emergence of a danish science textbook tradition during the long 18th-century and the usage of rhetorical fictionality in the circulation of natural knowledge.
