About me

I started my Ph.D. studies in computing education at Uppsala University in September 2016, under the supervision of Åsa Cajander and Minna Salminen-Karlsson. I belong to the Department of Information Technology and profilbildUppsala Computing Education ResearchGroup, UpCERG (http://www.it.uu.se/research/group/upcerg).

In my research project, I use a combination of theories from education and sociology to better understand how we can teach computing more inclusively. In my research project I study code clubs as a context for children to learn about computing from various perspectives. A part of my research project focuses on students’ CS-related capital development, motivation to study computing, and aspirations. I use both qualitative and quantitative methods in my research work. My research interests are many and include the philosophy and ethics of computing education, with a special interest in the ethical use of AI technology in society and in education. I am also passionate about research in computing related to gender, social justice and anti-oppressive education.

In my spare time, I like to be active. Currently, I do a lot of climbing and different outdoor activities depending on the weather.
