I did my bachelor at the University of Copenhagen, where I also studied ancient Greek and Latin, and in 2017 I received my Master’s degree in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History from Lund University. Between my Master and my PhD, I worked as a research assistant at Aarhus University.
My research is primarily focused on Greek architecture, and in my PhD I am investigating the building type called "heroon" in the Hellenistic period. These buildings combined religious and civic aspects of life: they were places for commemoration of individuals who became heroes in the collective imagination of the community. I will try to understand the heroon as a monument in a period where individuality and political power affected the society, and possibly connect it to the varying layouts. I will attempt at highlighting the full context of the buildings, considering both the physical and social landscape they were located in.
