Personal profile


In my PhD project, I explore Danish women's educational history 1938-1968. More precisely, I examine the women who were trained within nursing or home economics, and who had the opportunity to further their education at Aarhus University. It is thus the experience and understanding of the early academicization of these two female professions which are the focal point of my research.


I am a trained ethnologist from the University of Copenhagen (BA 2014 + MA 2016). In addition, I have a professional degree in Nutrition and Health from Copenhagen University of Applied Sciences (Suhr's Seminarium) (2010), and a diploma in pedagogy and didactics (2020).
