David Eskelund Nielsen

Head of Psychology​

My name is David, I’m co-founder of Enactlab and I’m the head of Psychology.

I conduct research which aims to integrate developmental psychological perspectives with cognitive science as well as philosophical and biological approaches and convert it into practice in order to better understand and describe how living with a disability creates both unique problems and unique possibilities. Through investigative and intervention processes I aim to understand how theoretical frameworks can be applied to practice understandings and interactions in everyday life to create intervention strategies which focuses on empowering individuals in relation to their environment.

I aim to apply this understanding in ways that opens up processes and allows people, through their own actions, to perceive new possibilities and continuously nuance their understanding of their own being and becoming in their life world.

I hold a master’s degree in Psychology from University of Copenhagen.
