Associate Professor / Head of Studies

Primary fields of research

My most recent research interest is ethnographic fieldwork with particular focus on how our students experience and handle fieldwork seen in relation to how we prepare them for this task. This interest follows from my engagement with our study programs as Head of Studies at the Department of Anthropology. Educational matters, however, is a theme which cut across my previous fields of interest. One of these is institutional upbringing. The other is related to craft matters, more precisely perceptions of quality and skill in craft making in India.

Affiliation to research groups: Business and Organisation; Migration and Mobility
