Personal profile

Presentation

I am a social anthropologist from University of Copenhagen and my main research interests include socially vulnerable children and familier, early intervention, migration and the relationship between newly arrived children and families and the Danish welfare state. I teach courses concerning early childhood education and I contribute to external courses and interventions. My research draws on critical phenomenology and ethnographic approaches. Before I was amployed at UCC I have carried out extensive research about Chinese society, including the relationship between children/youth, families and the state in China.

Research and development areas

I am currently working on a research project, which focuses on the relationship between time, trust and timing of early interventions in Danish social housing areas. My Ph.D. dissertation in social anthropology from the University of Copenhagen (2010) focused on higher education as a lens to understanding inter-generational ties and social China in China. It explored the eksistential dilemmas between young people and their parents as well as young people and the Chinese state in China. I have previously worked on a research project about the encounter between refugee families and the Danish welfare state.
