I am a faculty member at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. I came to Copenhagen in 1994 as a post-doc in high spin gamma ray spectroscopy after receiving my PhD from Purdue University based on research performed as a graduate assistant at Argonne National Laboratory. In 1995, I moved up in energy and joined the High Energy Heavy Ion group where I have been since. I am a member of the ALICE collaboration at the LHC. I am the director of the NBI’s outreach lab “Ungdomslaboratorie” (Lab for Youth), chair of the Danish Physical Society’s section for Outreach and Teaching, and the secretary of the European Physical Society’s Physics Education Division.
