Research

On this page you can find the academic articles I wrote about my research. In most of the cases, I have tried to make the content of these academic articles more accessible by writing blog posts about them. I also list other articles that I have written as well as press clippings which feature my research – where possible with a link to the original content.

Are you interested in reading an article but you don’t have access? Then please shoot me an e-mail at msvb[at]sdu.dk and I can send you an individual copy.

Enjoy the read!
