My main research interest is the role of language and communication in the learning and teaching of mathematics, but I have also studied issues in relation to belief-research and teachers' professional development. My main expertise is mathematics education at secondary and tertiary levels, but I have also studied primary level.

Most of my research is conducted in collaboration with Ewa Bergqvist, and together we lead the research group "Language and communication" within Umeå Mathematics Education Research Centre (UMERC). I also work as a guest professor of mathematics education at Mid Sweden University.
