I received my Bachelor’s degree in Classical Archaeology from the University of Copenhagen in 2015, where I also studied ancient Greek and Latin. In 2017, I finished a Master’s degree in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History from Lund University. From 2017 to 2019, I was a Research Assistant at Aarhus University. I began my PhD at Lund University in 2019.

My interest is in architecture and its contextual role, where a building is not only seen as a typological entity but rather an agent in the socio-cultural and political fabric of ancient Greece. My current research project is an exploration of monumental funerary architecture in Hellenistic Greece. Here, I investigate the spatial complexity through different architectural aspects, to understand the individual choices of the elite and their use of these tombs as an(other) means to negotiate power. As a part of this, I also discuss the definition of the term heroon and if (or how) it is possible to identity monuments as such.
