I am a Senior lecturer and Associate professor at the Department of Communication and Media. I teach and supervise students's thesis work at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. Since 2014, I am the course leader for Media, health and society (MKVN09) within our International Master Programme in MCS.

My research is oriented towards interdisciplinarity and multi-methodologicalapproaches. It revolves around childhood, media engagement and digital technology in everyday life (e.g. the DIGIKIDS project). I am also interested in media and health, in particular digital health, new creative ways of engaging with and making sense of digital technology for health or medical reasons.
