Presentation

I am associate professor in education, and lecture in topics related to education, multiculturalism and research methods. I wrote my PhD-thesis on schools and peacebuilding after conflict, based on fieldwork in Kenya which was carried out in collaboration with UNICEF. Over the last years I have been working with the Roma minority both in my teaching and research activities. I have carried out research in Romania, where I among other things collaborated with NGOs who were working to improve the educational situation for Roma. I have also researched how Roma are portrayed in educational research. I have been engaged in a range of questions related to the situation for Roma, including education, media exposure, migration and antigypsyism.

I am a member of the research groups ‘Education and values’ and ‘Migration, minorities and marginalization’.
