I am an associate professor in educational sciences at the department of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Society. My research interests generally concern students' knowledge and attitudes about science, but also learning in higher education. More specifically, the research is focused on different areas. The first concerns science communication and learning in informal environments such as museums and science centers. Central is how new scientific and technical knowledge can be shaped and communicated and how these environments can become arenas for lifelong learning. This is studied in the projects "Follow-up research at the Wisdom sustainability lab", "ESS and augmented reality" and the Erasmus-project "Accelerating Teaching".
The second area of research is related to learning in higher education and widening participation. The concept of sense of belonging is central here, but so is students' academic literacy. Furthermore, I study supervision in professional education and supervision in postgraduate education.
