    My latest book, Disaster Law, investigates how a change in the way disasters are understood and managed affects fundamental notions of duty, responsibility and justice. My present research continues these efforts, by investigating a wide range of issues relating to law and disasters.

    I am presently the chairman of the inter-institutional research center COPE; and part of steering committe of UCPH Sustainability Science Center.

    Internationally, I am part of the Nordic Centre of Excellence NORDRESS; and co-PI of the H2020-project ESPREssO. In Spring 2017, I am a visitor at Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at University of Cambridge.
