Morten Axel Pedersen

Professor

After having worked in Mongolia and elsewhere in Inner Asia for two decades, I have for the last five years been doing research in Denmark. As co-PI in the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS), I work on quali-quantitative methods, computational anthropology, and data ethics & politics. Simultaneously with my role in the new field of social data science, I conduct ethnographic research among neo-orthodox Lutheran Christians  and national-conservative intellectuals in Denmark.
