Welcome to my webpage! I am an associate professor in business and public policy at the Department of Social Sciences and Business at Roskilde University in Denmark, where I am part of the research groups Changing Societies: Welfare and Diversity and Economic Policy, Institutions and Change.
I have a long-standing interest in the role of business interests in politics. 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 ( 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, Scandinavian Political Studies, New Political Economy, and as a book.
I co-chair the research network Business in Politics and Society at the Council for European Studies and am a member of the steering group of the National Network for Welfare Studies (VELNET) in Denmark.
