Welcome! I am a political scientist studying business-politics relations, welfare state politics, industrial relations, and corporate taxation. I work as an assistant professor at the Department of Social Sciences and Business at Roskilde University in Denmark, where I am part of the research group Changing Societies: Welfare and Diversity.
My current research focuses on three topics: (a) the transnational regulation of corporate tax avoidance through profit shifting (project video); (b) the abolition of inheritance taxes in some countries (working paper, co-authored with Michael Baggesen Klitgaard); and (c) state support for collective bargaining, specifically through statutory coverage extension (forthcoming article in the British Journal of Industrial Relations, co-authored with Dennie Oude Nijhuis and Max Kiecker).
My previous work investigated the role of employer interests in welfare state politics and in industrial relations and focused, in particular, on Germany and Austria. The results are available, inter alia, as articles in World Politics, Comparative Political Studies, Socio-Economic Review, New Political Economy, and as a book.
On this website you can find more information about my research, teaching, and publications. If you find some of my work relevant to your own interests, I would be happy to hear from you. You can download my CV here (PDF, March 2020).
