About Anna's research

My research is in science education. Central questions within science education research concerns selections of content and teaching methods, but also who a student is able to become, as a consequence of those selections. To learn science includes the learning of content knowledge, but it also concerns learning to participate in science as a social and cultural practice.

I’ve primarily focused questions regarding identity, gender, and power in relation to the teaching and learning of science, in particular in the context of higher education. What knowledge is seen as important in science classrooms and what consequences does this have for learners’ possibility to identify themselves with the discipline? What role does gender and social class play in the teaching and learning of science? Questions such as these, where teaching and learning are explored in relation to a particular disciplinary content and culture is what interests me as a science education researcher.

In brief

Born: 1978
Interests: Food and drink (especially whiskey), photography, genealogy, and hiking in the mountains.
Other: My favorite teaching trick is to illustrate Newton's laws by inline skating and juggling at the same time.

I want to work to make the university more equal, to a place where more kinds of experiences and voices can get space. In order to realize this it is important to make research visible as a possible future for young people from different backgrounds, but also to improve the conditions for research and researchers who challenge norms.
