I am an archaeologist specialised in North European textiles and costumes. I received my Ph.D. in Prehistoric Archaeology from the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). I have been analysing textiles for numerous museums in Denmark and abroad. My areas of research include Scandinavian and Roman textile and costume traditions, the use and production of prehistoric plant fibre materials, especially nettle and flax, and study of costume from iconographic sources.

From the 1st of August 2010 I have started working on the new CTR Research Programme, Textile Crafts and Cultures, located at The National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen. In this research programme I will work, in close collaboration with several researcher from the National Museum and The SAXO-Institute, University of Copenhagen, with the unique collections of textiles costumes from the Danish Bronze Age.
