Assistant Professor for Sport and Social Science, Research Unit Sport and Body Culture, Department of Public Health, Aarhus University


In the past, I have explored the history of anti-doping science and authored the monograph Dope Hunters: The Influence of Scientists on the Global Fight Against Doping in Sport, 1967-1992. My current research focuses on the institutional history of World Athletics (formerly the IAAF), including its controversial role in the formation of global anti-doping policies. Besides my involvement in the INDR leadership, I am the chair of the international research network Sport & Society.
