I started my Ph.D. studies in computing education at Uppsala University in September 2016, under the supervision of Aletta Nylén and Åsa Cajander. I belong to the Department of Information Technology and Uppsala Computing Education ResearchGroup, UpCERG, which “conducts research in learning and teaching that informs tertiary educational practice in Computing and Engineering Education Research” (http://www.it.uu.se/research/group/upcerg).
In my research project, I use Bourdieu’s theory of capital, field, and habitus to better understand the unequal participation of girls and boys in computer science outreach activities in the Swedish context. I use both qualitative and quantitative methods in my research work. My research interests include computer science teaching and learning pedagogies and strategies in the K-12 classroom, students’ identity development and motivation to study computer science, as well as research related to social justice and equality in CS education.
I have a BSc in Digital Communication and Multimedia (2013) and a MSc in Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D), (2015), both from Stockholm University.
