Associate professor of history and education in the department of education. In 2013 I defended my thesis, Norden, nationen och historien: Perspektiv på föreningarna Nordens historieläroboksrevision 1919–1972 [Nordic National History: Perspectives on the History Textbook Revision by the Norden Associations, 1919–1972], which deals with interaction between, and changes within, historical cultures in Scandinavia. The postdoc-project, called "A history approved by government," finished in 2017 and dealt with The Swedish Government Approvement Scheme for history textbooks which reviewed and approved history textbooks and existed between 1938 and 1991. The Scheme was conceptualized as part of a national negotiation over national history. I am part of the research environment "History and Education".

Within Umeå Research Centre for Social Studies Didactics (UmSOD) I am involved with the project "Controversial Issues in Social Science Education" primarily studying how history teachers handle historical matters that are potentially controversial. Read more about UmSOD.

I am the principal investigator for the international research project Teaching Rival Histories, financed by the Swedish Research Council (2019–2022).

Currently I am also one of the editors for the Nordic Journal of Educational History.
