Søgaard Jørgensen’s research focuses on measuring sustainable development of national economies in the Anthropocene. A key question focuses on countries’ impact on the global environment through consumption of products produced in international supply chains. The safe and just operating space serves as one of the main guiding framework for the work.

Second, Søgaard Jørgensen leads a synthesis research exploring how social-ecological systems and resilience thinking can be operationalized to understand and provide solutions to minimize the impact of antibiotic resistance and pesticide resistance.

Søgaard Jørgensen is affiliated with Stockholm Resilience Centre through his position at The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere programme. Søgaard Jørgensen also helps to faciliate the the work of the Patterns of the Anthropocene research stream at the centre.

Søgaard Jørgensen is a macroecologist and evolutionary biologist by training, and since his PhD has worked to integrate these fields with social-ecological research methods and insights.

Søgaard Jørgensen has a keen interest in building international networks of researchers and practitioners, notably among early career professionals. Søgaard Jørgensen is a co-founder and current chair of the International Network of Next-Generation Ecologists (INNGE) and represents INNGE in a new platform for early career researchers, The Early Career Researchers Network of Networks (ECR NoN).

Søgaard Jørgensen has published in both Nature and Science on the topic of antibiotic resistance and solutions to other global challenges relating to evolutionary biology. He also serves as a member of executive board of the International Association for Ecology.
