I have done fourteen years of ethnographic research in sub-Saharan Africa (Mozambique), Latin America (Brazil), the UK (Scotland) and USA (New York) studying time and temporality, creativity and comedy, urban and national citizenship, urban politics, access to urban land, state formation, formal/informal governance, vernacular architecture, materiality and political cosmologies. Additional experiences include directing the Ethnographic Collections at Moesgaard Museum, coordinating an interdisciplinary Master’s Program in Human Security at Aarhus University, developing a Master’s Program in Urban Studies at Aarhus University, heading an interdisciplinary network on urban studies at Aarhus University, research-based consultancies and commissioned research for national and international donor agencies, developing museum designs for international museum exhibitions, editorial work, teaching and supervision at Scandinavian, Mozambican and British universities and organisation and coordination of international seminars and conferences.
