Primary research areas
I study the role of media in everyday life and in broader societal processes and contexts. My focus is on digital media, their diffusion and usage, their communicative characteristics and interplay with other media. My research includes the following topics:
- social media in everyday life
- methodological development in digital media research
- media innovation
- privacy and personal data protection in a regulatory and ethical perspective
- sociological media and communication theory
Exercising with the smartphone - a project on how smartphones can support and motivate a healthy lifestyle. The project is financed by the National Research Council for Communication and Culture as part of the research project Meaning Across Media: (http://meaningacrossmedia.mcc.ku.dk/).
The internet in my pocket - a qualitative study of what it means for ordinary Danes to have the internet with them on the mobile phone as their go about their daily life.
Privacy in practice - a project on how the regulation of personal data in Denmark has changed alongside the technological development, and the consequences of regulation for innovations in the media industry.
I participate in the EU COST action Transforming Audiences, Transforming Societies, which deals with how patterns of media use across media are changing, and how the role of the media audience is changing in light of the affordances of digital media for participation.
