I work as Associate Professor at the Department of Education. In doing so, I teach undergraduate courses, supervise doctoral students and conduct research within the fields of sport pedagogy. I primarly teach at the Sport Science Programme, the Sports Coaching Programme and Physical Education Teacher Education Programme.

In my research, I am interessted in the socialisation processes through which inividuals is formed and about the changes in social, cultural and historical circumstances in which these processes are embedded. My research is focused on different parts of the field of sports and are mainly based on quantiative  data. Some of the research projects I am involved in are:

Physical Education teachers perceptions of the subject and profession. Drawing on occupational socialization theory, the purpose of this project is to longitudinally analyze the development of PE teachers perceptions of the subject and profession.

Physical Education teacher students knowledge development. In this project we analyze the practival knowledge, expressed through Didactialc Milstones, studentes develope during the professional programme and the sources to these milsones.

Sport Participation in Sweden. The focus of this project, is to analyze how sports and physical actitivy patterns among children, youth and adults develope and change in a Swedish context.

Findings from these projects, and my previous research, are published primarily in Pysical Education and Sport Pedagogy, Sport, Education and Society, Sport in Society and Journal of Physical Education and Sport och Journal of Teaching in Physical Education.

I graduated in Sport Science in 2014 at the Swedish Scool of Sport and Helath Science with a disteration focusing on the devleopment of School Sports in Sweden, and the pupils and teachers involved. Since then I have worked at Umeå University and currently have a reserach postion with focus on Physical Education.
