Current research and teaching

I am taking part in a research project called “Carriers of Knowledge Society” studying the historical emergence and contemporary importance of the Swedish professions in different professional fields. My focus is the field of education and its professions. The project is funded by The Swedish Research Council and will be finished in 2016.


I teach at first and second cycle courses in sociology, social psychology, organizational sociology and sociology of education. Also I am an assistant supervisor for a research student in sociology of education.
