I am a professor of pedagogy with specialization in special education, but also have long experience of teaching in science school subjects and mathematics at, above all, upper secondary school. I got my PhD in 2007 and my thesis deals with how gender is constructed in classroom practice and how teachers can change their teaching towards a more inclusive science classroom.

My research interests have since been about norms and identity creation in schools and society. Issues about power, democracy and participation are central to my research that deals with inclusion / exclusion, normality / deviation and equality / inequality. In my analyses, I want to link micro, meso and macro levels, i.e. involve individual, school / education and society / social development because the political context surrounding school, classroom and individual is crucial for what happens there. I have taught many different teacher training courses, e.g. in courses related to identity, sexuality and cohabitation, but also more general education courses on e.g. norm-critical pedagogy.
