My background is in sedimentary basin analysis, where I have studied the formation of pockmarks and sandstone intrusions. Since 2016, my research has moved towards geo-archaeology, and I currently work with the flooded and buried landscapes in the Danish North Sea. Here, I investigate geological landscape forming processes related to rising sea level, glacial dynamics, geohazards and paleolandscape evolution. Such help us assess the living conditions for Stone Age populations in Doggerland.

Teaching activities

Teaches marine geophysical methods, with focus on the reflection seismic and acoustic method. In my teaching, I emphasize having active students, e.g. via group discussions and presentations, plenary discussions or case study work where the students use data and methods. My courses also include marine geophysical fieldwork on the university's research vessel Aurora. I continuously develop my teaching so that my students gain relevant skills for the labor market.


My latest major interdisciplinary research project deals with marine geoarchaeology in the North Sea, where I work together with partners from universities, museums and research institutions in England, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark to develop methods to identify areas with potential cultural heritage. My research has often had an applied focus and I therefore also have a close collaboration with particularly the offshore wind farm industry.
