I am part of the research group Umeå Science Education Research (UmSER). I am currently working on an ethnographic project that aims to develop a better understanding of how and why societal concerns often are neglected in engineering education. I use discourse theory and discursive psychology to analyze how societal concerns are constructed as different from, and less important than, purely scientific and technical concerns.

Previously, I have focused on engineering students' approaches to complex sustainability problems (so-called "wicked problems"). I have used a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches, including phenomenography, action research, and design-based research. I am interested in doing more research on wicked problems in engineering education, especially focusing on the role of emotions in learning to address wicked problems.

Besides my research, I have taught and developed courses on sustainability, ethics, education for sustainability, pedagogy for PhD students, and academic writing for PhD students.

It is important to me that my research can contribute to improving educational practice. Therefore, I am always interested in collaborating with teachers and program developers.
