I am a PhD student in Education and a member of the SITE research group.

In my thesis, I examine Swedish and German pupils' justice conceptions of assessment. The study is characterised by a combination of a context-sensitive comparative approach on the one side and a theory-developing approach on the other. My research is part of a cooperation project between Linnaeus University and the Centre for Comparative and International Education, Humboldt University Berlin: "Different worlds of meritocracy? Educational assessment and conceptions of justice in Germany, Sweden and England in the age of “standards-based reform”. The thesis is supervised by professor Daniel Sundberg (Linnaeus university) and professor Florian Waldow (Humboldt university, Berlin).

My research interest is about: comparative and international education research, empirical justice research, assessment and grading as well as qualitative research methods and theory generating methodological approaches such as the Grounded Theory Methodology.

Besides research, I am also involved in teaching (mainly with regard to grading and assessment), supervision of bachelor theses as well as the coordination of the research group "SITE".
