PhD studies in Computing Education, under the supervision of Mats Daniels (main supervisor), Anders Berglund and Anne-Kathrin Peters. We are part of the Uppsala Computing Education Research Group (UpCERG). I am also one of the PhD students in UpRiSE, the Uppsala Research School in Subject Education.

My research is focused on role models. This involves work such as analyzing the experiences of teachers in computing as role models for their students and how they present other role models in their classes, developing a vocabulary around the role modeling in computing phenomenon, to name a few examples.
