I am a member of the SITE research group (Studies in Curriculum, Teaching and Evaluation) and responsible for the practical coordination of the group.

My main research interests are about assessment and grading in different contexts; questions regarding justice in relation to education; as well as comparative education with a focus on context-sensitive comparisons, and the methodological and methodical questions related to this.

Currently, I am involved in a research project financed by the Swedish Research Council "Exploring the elusive teaching gap – equity and knowledge segregation in teaching processes".

In my doctoral thesis, I compared German and Swedish pupils' conceptions regarding just assessment in school. The study combined a context-sensitive comparative approach with a theory generating approach, the Grounded Theory Methodology. The project has been a part of a cooperation project with the Centre for Comparative and International Education at Humboldt University in Berlin.

I am also responsible for and teach in courses on assessment and grading within the teacher programmes on primary, lower and upper secondary level. In addition, I also teach in courses on curriculum theory and didactics. Moreover, I work with the supervision of students theses and I am responsible for the organisaton and implementation of a support group for students´ thesis-writing. Other work areas are e.g. contract education etc.
