I have a PhD in Nuclear Physics from Aarhus University, Denmark. Between 2010 and 2018 I was employed as Postdoc at TRIUMF in Canada (2010-13) and as Assistant Professor at Aarhus University (2013-18) on two grants from the Villum Foundation. During these years, I was a frequent visitor at large international accelerator laboratories such as CERN in Switzerland and led a number successful experimental collaborations, which have advanced our understanding of the nuclear processes that generate energy and transmute chemical elements in the interiors of stars. Eager to put my knowledge and analytical skills to use in a more applied setting, I returned to Canada in 2018 and joined the MERIDIAN project. Based at the Institute for Big Data Analytics at Dalhousie University in Halifax, I am now leading a small team of data scientists and software developers in creating data analytics and modeling tools for the underwater acoustics research community.


I do my best to keep my ORCID profile up to date, and I also have a Google Scholar profile that Google kindly keeps up to date for me.
