I am passionate about using insights from the behavioural neurosciences to design digital technology that is sensitive to human limitations and biases, particularly in relation to attention and self-regulation.
I have a highly interdisciplinary background and try to integrate best practices from many work spheres, such as using tools from large-scale event management to structure academic projects.
Professional skills: Event production and team leadership, public speaking, teaching.
Languages: Danish (native level), English (native level), Spanish (intermediate), Arabic (beginner-intermediate), German (beginner-intermediate), French (beginner).
Personal interests: Travelling & couchsurfing, dancing (Cuban salsa and swing), playing music (whatever instruments I can get my hands on, and ideally with the Karaoke Collective)
