Academic interests

My primary research interests revolve around two main themes: 

- Mathematical competence. Different understandings of mathematical competence and how mathematical competence can be assessed and measured.

- Mathematical tasks. The opportunities to learn mathematics provided by mathematical tasks, analysis of tasks and tasks demands, and teachers' knowledge about and use of mathematical tasks.

I am also interested in students' attitudes towards mathematics, educational choice and equality and equity in education. The majority of my research and work is quantitatively oriented and based on analysis of large-scale assessment data.

 

Background

2014–2019: University of Oslo, PhD in Mathematics Education: Towards competency-oriented mathematics education: An investigation of task demands and teachers' knowledge of task demands from a competency perspective

2012–2014: Adviser at the University of Oslo, Department of Teacher education and School research - Developing national mapping tests in mathematics for grades 1–3

2012: Master of Science Education, with a specialisation in Mathematics and Physics. Title of Master thesis: Hvordan beskriver norske fysikkstudenter bakgrunnen for sitt utdanningsvalg? (How do Norwegian physics students describe the background for their educational choice?)
