I hold a MSc in Urban and Regional Planning (2006) from the Vienna University of Technology, and worked in extenstion to that at the Centre of Regional Science on the benchmarking of Smart Cities. Since December 2007 I work at the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management (former 'Danish Centre for Forest, Landscape and Planning'). From 2008 to 2012 I worked on my PhD project called "Urbanisation, urban growth and planning", dealing with urbanisation of rural areas, its spatial characteristics and impacts like e.g. urban sprawl and the use of urban growth management strategies. The project was supervised by Gertrud Jørgensen, Thomas Sick Nielsen and Stephan Pauleit.

In the past 10 years I was involved in several national and international projects, including

I am co-supervising two PhD students, Juliane Große and Lu Sun.

I teach and supervise in the Landscape Architecture programme. From 2008 to 2014 I was co-responsible for the bachelor course "Bypolitik" (Urban policies). Since 2016 I am co-responsible for the "Byplan Studio" (Urban Planning Studio). I also supervise bachelor and master students. Here you can find a list of potential topics for master theses within our research group.
