Personal profile

Research areas

Mag.art. and PhD in art history with a dissertation on creative processes in Italian Renaissance architecture in the 16th century.

As a research librarian in the Art Library at the Royal Danish Library I specialize in the architecture and art of the last centuries in connection with preserved materials from architects and artists. 

I am particularly interested in how art and architectural history is produced and have researched Renaissance architectural drawings and treatises, versions of Vitruvius and 20th century architectural historiography.

From 2012 to 2018, as part of my postdoc at the Royal Danish Academy, I was based in Berlin, affiliated with Humboldt Universität and a member of Netzwerk Architekturwissenschaft.

Research areas: Art and architectural history, architectural drawings and treatises, the reception of Vitruvius, antique reception, archival history and theory.
