I work as a Senior Lecturer and teach and research primarily in sport science. I also teach at the Basic Training Programme for Police Officers.
I am working as Senior lecturer at the Department of Education, here I teach and am doing research in Sport science/sport pedagogy. My subjects at the Department of Education is mostly connected to leadership/leadership processes and coaching but I am also teaching about Event management/Sport Management. I am the chairman for the board of the Sport Science program/Idrottsvetenskapliga programmet. I also work at the Basic Training Programme for Police Officers were I teach the subjects group processes and mental and physical preparation.
In 2001 I finished my licentiate dissertation "Är det alltid rätt person som vinner? Bedömningarnas reliabilitet och validitet inom bedömningssporterna acroski och rytmisk gymnastik"/Is it always the right person that wins? The reliabibility and validity of the judgements and measurements in the judging sports acroski and rhythmic gymnastics". Between 2008 and 2010, I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation "Deciding who is the best. Validity issues in selections and judgements in elite sport". My research have been focusing on measurements and judgements in sport, sport development and drop out from sports. In the future, I am hoping to also do research about resilience especially in connection to working as a police officer and the police profession. I have been working on some research applications about Self-Regulated Learning (SLR) in sport.
Sport has always been an important part of my life and I have been involved in sports in different positions as an organizer, co-producer of events, judge, member and chairman of different boards and committees. I competed as an elite athlete in the Swedish Freestyle Ski team for many years and took medals at World Cups and World Championships. Before the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, I worked with the Swedish freestyle ski team as the performance/mental coach on behalf of the Swedish Ski federation and the Swedish Olympic Committee. My own experiences and connections to the sports world is something I see as very beneficial in my teaching and research processes.
