I am a 5+3 Ph.D.-stipend, and alumni from Aarhus University, where I have obtained a bachelor's and master's degree in philosophy. 

My area of expertise lies within phenomenology, philosophy of medicine with a focus on psychiatry, philosophy of science, critical theory and philosophy of technology. 


I am working on a Ph.D.-project within the field of phenomenological psychopathology. My project is specifically about schizophrenia, and seeks to use phenomenological philosophy to increase our ability to identify and understand the anomalous first-person experiences found within this disorder. 

Teaching activities

I have experience in teaching from roles as instructor, teaching assistant and scientific assistant. I have taught courses on philosophy of science at the bachelor's education in philosophy as well as medicine. 

In addition, I have twice been solely responsible for a 10 ECTS internationalization elective at ICC, with a particular focus on critical theory and philosophy of technology, where I gave extensive supervision and sparring on exam papers.


Mads Gram Henriksen, associate professor at the University of Copenhagen and senior researcher at Centre of Psychiatry Amager, co-supervises the project. This secures the necessary psychiatric expertise and clinical experience that the project requires.
