Current research

I am interested in students' transitions to and from higher education STEM study programmes. In particular I am interested in students' academic integration-processes, rentention and choices.

In my work I try to understand identity negotional strategies, how to become a student in a certain context and how gender is performed in science and technology study programmes.

Recently my interest includes the concept of employability, it's meaning and application in higher education contexts.

I ongoingly work on developing and applying qualitative methods.

Primary fields of research

University peadogogy in general and in particular science and engineering higher education programmes. I am interested in the students' and how they navigate when meeting content, lectures, teaching and learning cultures and rutines - in relation to the mechanisms of inckusion and exclusion embedded in the study programme. Gender is a particual interest.

My research also includes transition processes and the choices and negotiations that appears herein.

A particular research interest is the development and rethink of q ualitative methods.
