I have two decades of project management expertise, including being a consortium leader of a H2020 proposal (submitted 2017), leading the research group Embodied Making and Learning at HSN, co-funding and serving at the Editorial Board of the research journal FORMakademisk, and sucessfully winning funding from national and nordic research bodies in the past.
I have similarly two decades of research experience within Embodied making and learning, teacher education, formbild construction and creativity and culture.
I have taught MA-level Art and Design education (+15 years) and PhD-level Culture studies and Culture education (+5 years), and I have taught children in school as a regular teacher before changing careers to research.
