Research

My research interests include learning and teaching in higher education and professional development in working life, especially from the perspective of professional knowledge and science literacy. In my PhD, I examined student and primary teachers' agency in integrating theory and practice. I am also interested in professional identities, career transitions, and affect and embodiment in working life. I mainly focus on in-depth qualitative methods such as discourse, narrative, and sociomaterial analysis.
