About me

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Education, Stockholm University, Sweden, with a particular interest in sociology of education.

My research has focused on structural changes of educational institutions, predominantly upper-secondary school and higher education due to social and cultural changes of the flux of students as well as analysis of family’s social history in relation to those changes.

In addition, I have also been engaged in projects regarding changes of teacher’s profession, specifically in relation to restructuring of schooling and marketization, drawing on the work of Durkheim, Bourdieu, and Bernstein, among others. Furthermore, I have been engaged in a research project at École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, 2007-2010, as well as being involved in a collaboration project between University of Wisconsin-Madison and Stockholm University, 2012-2015. 

I am currently involved in a research project about school leadership and the receiving of newcomers immigrants pupils.
