My main research area is the interrelations between Danish and German literature and culture around 1800 and 1900, including migrant authors, cosmopolitanism, and transnational literature. My PhD dissertation (2008) on the bilingual border crossing author Jens Baggesen (1764-1826) was published in a revised and extended form entitled En grænsegænger mellem oplysning og romantik. Jens Baggesens tyske forfatterskab. (Museum Tusculanum Press 2015).

In the period around 1900 I am investigating the literary transfers and transmissions between Scandinavia, Germany and France. This research in cooperation with the University of Göttingen has resulted in three conference publications (Königshausen & Neumann 2013, 2015, 2016). Together with prof. Detlef Siegfried I have edited a book on German cultural history from 1648 to present for Danish readers (Gyldendal 2012), which is used as a history text book in university education in Denmark.

Another field of my research is German and Scandinavian Romanticism in a European context. I have co-founded and co-edit the journal Romantik. Journal for the Study of the Romanticisms (Aarhus University Press), aiming at the international dissemination of Nordic research and promoting a (global) dialogue on new investigations into the cultures of Romanticism. A third field of research is literature, eco-criticism and ecology in German and Scandinavian literature (ed. with Adam Paulsen: Natur und Moderne um 1900. Räume, Repräsentationen, Medien. Transcript Verlag 2013)
