Since 2017 I hold a PhD in history from Lund University, and I am scholarly active as researcher, lecturer and editor. I specialize in early modern cultural history of Northern Europe, with special attention to religious practices and urban spaces.

My research centres on various dilemmas of human co-existence: limits of toleration, privacy and private matters, notions of peace on specific local levels, and eighteenth-century reforms motivated by a mix of Enlightenment rationales and confessional culture.

Currently I hold a postdoc position within the six-year research program PRIVACY at the University of Copenhagen. I contribute to two site-based case teams: Helmstedt (1620–1680) and Altona (1750–1800).

I am the editor-in-chief of the peer-review journal "1700-tal: Nordic Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies", and the co-editor of the book project "Reason and Orthodoxy. Religious Enlightenment in the Nordic countries". I am also working on a project on Johann Conrad Dippel (1673–1734).
