Introduction
I am a senior researcher in human geography and specializes in quantitative research of human interactions to the locational specific characteristics in urban, rural, peripheral, cross-border, and spatio-temporal functional localities, their development, planning, policy, and economic growth. I study socioeconomic processes that shape different types of localities, their unevenness and heterogenous conditions that implicate how “things” work in one place and do not work in another.

All the talks about COVID19 and I got also inspired to make a quick "Coffee-break entry" on the thoughts, that have been nesting in me during this year. It is interesting to know how much country's socioeconomic indicators can explain the spread of the COVID19 and whether there are any indications of how. By downloading the data from the WHO Covid1...

Theoretical and methodological discussion and understanding of regions-urban, rural, peripheral and cross-border, and the role of Human Capital in the regional development and growth. Employing spatial econometric models for studying human capital mobility between the urban/rural types of regions, while developing new empirical methodology of how t...
Article

This paper presents a calculation of Denmark's production and consumption-based accounting CO2e emissions for five regions in 2011. We apply an environmentally extended economic model for Danish municipalities known as the Local “INterregional” Economic (LINE) model, together with a multi-regional input-output model for the world economy (EXIOBASE...

This paper studies Airbnb as a form of digital entrepreneurship and its direct and derived socioeconomic effects on local economies in urban and peripheral regions. The study shows that the income generated through Airbnb is used to pay hosts' housing costs and contributes to increasing private consumption, which has positive impact on value creati...
Article

This paper investigates the role that spatial mobility plays for early‐career labor market outcomes across education programs and qualification levels. We use data for the full population of Danish graduates from upper (post‐)secondary and tertiary education programs to estimate the labor market returns from migrating after graduation. Benchmark OL...

Aim of this paper is to investigate the relationship between the changes in productivity and economic growth in Danish regions at the NUTS 3 level. Using the historical data we compare the changes in the sector productivity before and after the financial crisis in 2008-2009. It shows that there is a difference in the sector productivity among the r...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
There are ongoing political and scientific debates regarding pollution from the economic activities and its consequences on nature and society in the global terms. The climate change seems inevitable and the natural resources keep depleting. One of the reasons can be because we lack understanding how to treat the resources and how to decrease pollu...

JEL classification: R12; R15; R22; R29 Macroeconomic models are filled with the dichotomous principles. It takes at least two factors to grasp the complexity of the ongoing processes in economy. Different types of macroeconomic models are built on two main principles, such as, quantity and price model, or static and dynamic model, or economic and...
Chapter
In recent decades, European neighbouring regions have gained importance in the processes of spatial integration within the European Union. Based on the European Cohesion goals, cross-border cooperation among institutions supports the socio-economic development of the regions and enhances equality across Europe. In order to study cross-border instit...
Article
Labour mobility and local employment: building a local employment base from labour mobility? Regional Studies. Do labour inflows contribute to job opportunities for local residents? This question is analysed based on a three-step instrumental variables (IV) estimation procedure including two-way fixed effects to control for unobserved heterogeneity...
Chapter
In the recent decades, European neighbouring regions gained importance in the processes of spatial integration within the European Union. Spatial integration is considered to create openness of local economies and societies to promote a European culture with common norms and values. Cross-border regions benefit from the common European goal of inte...
Article
Institutionalisation of European border regions is associated with the European Cohesion Policy and territorial integration and aims to create a common European mentality and culture as well as common norms. EU regional governance emphasises the role of institutions implementing local joint initiatives and maintaining a sustainable development in t...

This paper studies the spatial mobility of human capital in their early career stage, and more precisely, individuals entering the labour market soon after graduating from the higher educational institutions (HEIs). The graduates’ mobility deserves special focus, as these are individuals who can build a local human capital base in the destination l...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Employment growth is a crucial issue for any locality, as it reflects the ability to build an economic basis. In some cases the employment growth relies on the local (resident) labour supply, while in other cases the growth in employment may reflect to an increasing reliance on attracting labour from other local labour markets. In the latter case,...

mobility This paper is the theoretical and conceptual discussion of the role of human capital in the development of peripheral cross-border 1 regions 2 . The paper intends to find a consensus on three aspects: the definition, the role, and geography of human capital. The role of human capital is considered of utmost importance for regional developm...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Human geographers and economists have been widely discussing the "Core-Periphery" theme throughout some decades. They have defined and re-defined this concept many times and have integrated within conceptual and econometric models. Theoretical understanding of the concept "core-periphery" has changed along with the economic development of spaces (r...

Project
SAM-K and LINE is Danish IO-CGE model and stands for Linear INterregional Economic model for Danish SAM at the K-municipality level (at NUTS3-level). The model is built and updated twice a year to monitor population development, employment and unemployment, income, consumption, etc. in Danish regions, municipalities and parts of municipalities. The model can provide data at regional, municipal and sub-municipal level on a number of issues relating to Danes and Danish companies. It uses Personal and Company Data from Statistics Denmark and National Accounts Data. We model local economies, societies and calculate future development projections and forecasts. The model operates with data on three levels: - actually registered - calculated historical - expected (projections) We apply model to apply different development assumptions and analyse different scenarios of regional and local development. My research focus in this project is in urban and rural linkages and leakages, spillovers and labour market dynamics.

To advocate for consumption-based accounting of emissions (emission embodied in trade) as a complement to the production-based accounting using an environmentally extended multi-regional input-output model. 2. To ascertain the effect of less emission-intensive livestock feed inputs on Denmark's carbon and resource footprint. 3. To estimate emissions and resource footprint embodied in the global trade of livestock products.
