I have conducted research in media industry development in the Asian region and taught university-level courses in film, media, and design related topics at universities in Hong Kong and Thailand. I am now working at Aarhus University. My research interests focuses on the role and interplay between socioeconomic, political, cultural, and technological developments in the audio-visual industry and is based on extensive fieldwork and collaboration with private, public, and civic society stakeholders. My research aim is to explore media aesthetics, institutional and organizational trends; capacity building initiatives; and transnational knowledge sharing among academics and industry stakeholders.
