As Associate Professor at the Technologies in Practice Research Group at the IT University of Copenhagen, and at the Chair of Technoscience Studies at Brandenburg University of Technology, and as a fellow at the Museum für Naturkunde I conduct research on
- Data natures, with Prof. Tahani Nadim, focusing on data infrastructures within natural history collections and environmental monitoring and the human and nonhuman agents involved;
- autochthonous agents and (informational) politics of coal – coal as an effect of the carbonisation of plant materials.
The key concern in my research asks how the digital and society meet and are woven into each other. I explore the situated politics at the heart of the "digital society" and of projects of "digitalising nature". This pushes me to analyse the structures and nitty-gritty contingencies of power, knowledge, technology and science.
