About me

Nina’s research investigates how digital technologies impact the way we work, create, and live, especially in the context of cultural/media production. Before joining the LSE, Nina carried out her doctoral research in KCL's Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries with funding from the London Arts and Humanities Partnership. Her PhD thesis (‘Data, Camera, Action: Screen Production in a Streaming Era’) examines how European film and TV workers make sense of their collaborations with data-driven players like Netflix and Amazon. As a result, Nina has gained insight into the ways these streamers shape production processes, industry structures, and screen content.

Prior to moving to the UK, Nina studied Film and Media at the University of Copenhagen and spent semesters abroad in both the US and Australia. She then went on to work on a municipal initiative that transformed Copenhagen’s Harbour into a hub for arts and culture. On this project, she collaborated with artists and local associations to organise events in the harbour water (think synchronised swimming, raft concerts, and waterbombing championships).

Nina thoroughly enjoys teaching and has taught on both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. She is always trying to develop her teaching skills and use of creative pedagogies.
