My research focuses on the integration of digital technologies into everyday life, its impact on the cultural imagination and the trajectories of cultural history of which it is part. I have a particular interest in the invisibilities and uncertainties that arise from data-tracking and datafication processes and the ways in which they manifest in film, art, literature, architecture, design as well as everyday experiences. My methodologies are grounded in aesthetic and cultural theory but range from computational to practise-based artistic and speculative methodologies. I prefer working collaboratively and across disciplines, and I seek to think academic processes and outputs in new and experimental ways, taking great pride in fostering inclusive and caring research environments. I am currently co-leading the research hub INTERSECT https://intersect.ku.dk at the University of Copenhagen.
My work has been recognised with an honorary Research Fellowship at the Surveillance Studies Centre, Queen’s University, Canada, and with the Lars Arge Award for Young Scientists 2021, awarded by the Royal Academy of Sciences and Letters.
I have organised and convened over 30 international seminars, conferences and workshops and is a frequent invited speaker. I have published the monographs Narrative Negotiations: Information Structures in Literary Fiction (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2009), and co-authored with Henriette Steiner Tower to Tower: Gigantism in Architecture and Digital Culture (MIT Press, 2020) and Touch in the Time of Corona: Reflections on Love, Care and Vulnerability in the Pandemic (2021). Moreover, I am co-editor of over ten collected volumes and journal issues.
