My research and teaching is focused on natural resource management, especially land tenure security, land access and land markets in the Global South, including governance and authority issues as well as civil society organizations with relation to (land-, water- and other) rights. Rural development, inequality and gender issues are also part of my key interests. I have worked and lived in Latin America for almost a decade, where my regional specialization is, but have recently been involved in a 3-year research project in northern Laos. During 2016-2021 my research focus will be on international land-related investments and their impacts on land tenure security, water tenure security and employment effects in Uganda and Tanzania, as well as on Danish investors in agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa, through a research project called “Agricultural Investors as Development Actors? (AIDA)”. See more at

Outside of my research position I work with rural development in Danish and Nordic context and have a consultancy firm advising and executing projects for municipalities, ministries, private companies and CSOs.
