I work as an assistant professor in sociology, where I teach various courses for Bachelor in Sociology and Masters in Social Sciences. My research interests are social inequality, inclusion/exclusion, sociology of education, educational governance, and sociology of quantification. I am currently working on a thesis concerning how the OECD is approaching the concept of equity in education, focusing on the analyses of equity in PISA-reports. I am also participating in the NTNU-based research project 'Childhood, school and inequality in the Nordic countries' An important objective of this project is to study economic, political and institutional conditions for childhood, and mechanisms of social inclusion/exclusion.
