I am a physicist at the Danish National Space Institute working on the scientific and instrumental data analysis software for a number of satellite-based astronomical instruments. Currently this includes JEM-X on the INTEGRAL satellite, which was launched in 2002, and HFI on the Planck satellite that was launched in May 2009.

Since January 2014 I have been the communications office for DTU Space and the web editor for the website

As well as writing and maintaining software I hold lectures/activities on astronomy and cosmology for school children in the Greater Copenhagen area.
