Senior Lecturer/Assistant Professor


I have a PhD in science and mathematics education, appointed as university lecturer in educational science at the Department of Science, Mathematics and Society. In my doctoral thesis (2015) I studied the international knowledge assessment PISA, focusing on the scientific part of the assessment. Since then, I have continued to be interested in knowledge measurement and education policy, and the relationship between research/science and the surrounding society. Not least, this applies to the interaction between research, media and policy/politics. I mainly teach courses within teacher eduac tion programs, with a focus on the above areas.
During the years 2018-2021, I had a post doc linked to the interdisciplinary research project Education Inc., funded by the Swedish Research Council/Crafoord Foundation with the focus on the commersialisation of education. I am also one of four researchers in Malmö University-funded research project where we, in collaboration with five local education authorities, study the local administrations of systematic quality work.
