I have worked at Umeå university since 2001 and focus on teaching and chemistry education research. Since 2017, I'm appointed distinguised teacher at the faculty. From September 1st, 2019, I'm the chair of the Education Committee at the Faculty of Science and Technology and member of the faculty leadership. From 2021, I'm docent in chemistry education. From 2022, I hold positions as the associate dean at the faculty, am part of the Pedagogical Qualification Board, the Library Board, and am the chair of the The National Resource Center for Chemistry Teachers (KRC).

I mostly teach students at the upper secondary school teacher education programme and the supplementary programme in secondary education (KPU). One of my most common and meaningful tasks is to examine teacher students when they do their practice courses in schools. 

Within research, my research area is chemistry education. In my thesis from 2015, I studied upper secondary school students affective and cognitive learning related to context-based learning approaches. Morover, I study digital tools related to chemistry education at university level through a flipped learning project together with the Chemistry department. We have also a Punktum project where virtual reality (VR) is used to explore students' spatial ability, i.e., the movement from 2D to 3D when studying chemistry phenomena.

Collaboration is an important aspect of my work. I'm the co-vice chair for the Western Europe within EuCheMS Division of Chemical Education and work for the Swedish Chemical Society with for example the Berzelius days. I also have a position at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences's National committee in chemistry.
