I am a member of the SITE research group (Studies in Curriculum, Teaching and Evaluation). My main research interests are about assessment and grading in different contexts; critical perspectives on justice and equivalence 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 for primary, lower and upper secondary level. In addition, I also teach in courses on curriculum theory and didactics. Moreover, I work with the supervision and examination of students theses; different forms of contract education related to my research expertise etc.

I am an editor and editorial secretary for the peer-reviewed Swedish journal "Pedagogisk forskning i Sverige".
