My research is focused on sociotechnical and educational imaginaries. Specifically, I have mapped out the genealogy of the digital citizen as an entanglement of automation, education and citizenship. Empirically, my research spans from the 1950s up until today. I have studied how automation and AI has contributed to educational governance. My work presents a new framework (educational imaginaries) that combines sociotechnical imaginaries with the notion of problematisations as a form of governmental logic.
