Personal profile


I have mainly performed experiments on strong field effects, typically carried out at the european laboratory for particle physics, CERN.


I have taught many of the basic subjects within physics, as well as a few advanced courses. For the past several years, I have been in charge of the department's teaching in special relativity, for which I have written a textbook (in Danish).


Job responsibilities

I am employed as department head from July 1. 2018 until June 30, 2024 after which I return to my professorship in experimental relativistic atomic physics.
