Since 2012 I have worked part-time as a teacher and researcher at the Teacher Education  Program at Stockholm university . My research interests are mainly focused at history and social studies education in secondary school, specifically how history and social studies can contribute to students' civic education.

I have been an upper secondary teacher since 2000 and I am currently on leave from my senior lecturer position at the Global College in Stockholm where I teach social studies, history and religious studies.

Presently, I hold a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of teaching and Learning in the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSD). My research project focuses on how social studies students in upper secondary school understand and reason about normative dimensions when studying societal issues.

Apart from being a researcher, I teach and tutor students enrolled in the Teacher Education  Program – particularly those who are studying to become teachers in social studies and geography.
