Description of Research in Relation to Placemaking : 

My research revolves around place management and site specific qualities, problems and potentials. I have a particular focus on port cities and other highly mobility affected places. Such cities tend to struggle with local identity and placemaking when flows of goods and people are passing through more than actually being anchored within the everyday life of locals.

Interest in Contribution Field/Context: 

With an urban design perspective and access to Danish cases/actors/data of different kinds relevant to this action. 

Case Studies Conducted / Participated In: 

An in-depth case study of the port town Hirtshals, Denmark: at the same time a growing port and a shrinking city (see case study description elsewhere)

Keywords for research experience: 
Keywords for research interest for collaboration: 
External Stakeholders Engaged With: 

Several Danish port authorities and municipalities

Modes of Investigation: 

Mixed methods, but predominantly qualitative such as field observations, interviews, questionnaires, document analysis and more
