Research and teaching information

My research area is culture analysis in support of military operations. I am project manager for a research project on culture as an operational enabler in military operations. I support and develop culture training and education for a wide range of clients within the Danish Defence as well as international partners.

My regional focus is West Africa, and for several years I have been conducting research in Mali. From 2019 to 2022 I will focus on my ph.d. research project 'It is Their War - cultural interaction in military training missions'. In addition, I have conducted analysis of specific cultural factors in Afghanistan and Irak.
