Assistant Professor, Department of Education Stockholm University
PhD. Sociology, Stockholm University
MSc. Sociology, University of Oxford

I am a sociologist of education and work. My research takes place at the intersection of education and labour markets, and pays special attention to vocations, trajectories and temporality. In recent years, my research projects have examined elite institutions, higher vocational education, and transnational education strategies. These studies have allowed me to analyse education-to-work pathways that are institutionalised, as well as pathways that are emerging and anticipatory, and have offered me opportunities for fieldwork experience in Singapore, the United Kingdom and Sweden. You can read more about her recent research projects and publications here.

Before life in academia, I worked in the foreign service as well as conducted research for policy and practice at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies and Institute for Adult Learning in Singapore.

I am presently Assistant Professor (biträdande universitetslektor) at the Department of Education, Stockholm University, and a Visiting Fellow at the Nanyang Technological University. I received a PhD in Sociology from Stockholm University and a Master of Science in Sociology from the University of Oxford.
