Research areas


My passion is to explore and support how professionals (e.g. teachers, health professionals, sport coaches) learn and perform in specialised and context-specific practices.

I have an academic background in the social sciences of sport and adult pedagogy. Today, my expertise revolve around situational and social aspects of teaching and learning. In particular, I am engaged in exploring the process of developing and changing professional identities among academics in higher education.

In my work as an experienced teacher and educational developer, I am rooted in John Dewey’s pragmatic theory of experiential learning and reflective thought and action and Pierre Bourdieu’s reflexive sociology.

I am deputy chair of the Danish Network for Educational Development in Higher Education (2014-present), chair of the Committee for Danish National Teaching Award (2020-present), and member of The Swedish Research Council for Sport Science (2019-present).
