Professor of STEM Education and Science Communication

I am Director of Centre for Research in Science Education and Communication (FNUG), where education and communication scholars collaborate with mathematicians, physicists, chemists, biologists and other scientists to create inspiring and formative educational experiences - remodeling science education for engagement. Read about our transdisciplinary center.

As the Director of our research center, I have led our talented team in securing a total of over 25 million Danish Kroner in external funding. This includes funding obtained by myself and additional grants obtained by my predecessor and other accomplished team members, and reflects our strong dedication to making a significant impact in our field.

In less than three years, I have personally secured over 10 million Danish Kroner (approximately 1.5 million USD)  with the generous support of esteemed funding agencies and collaborators. I am PI on the LabSTEM+ project (NNF, 5 mio DKK, 2023-2025) and the Longitudinal NAFA Knowledge Ecology project (CESE, 4 mio DKK, 2023-2026), and I contribute to several other research projects.

With colleagues I work to innovate education through transdisciplinary practice. My research explores how information and communication designs mediate learning, knowing, and understanding. I facilitate individual and collective knowledge processes, employing visual, spatial, textual, and performative modes of engagement.

I demonstrate leadership as the Director of FNUG and as a section leader at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.  I also lead the Laboratory for STEM Education and Learning and contribute to the Danish Academy of Natural Science's executive research committee. I chair the SDU research programme in Science and Mathematics Education and Communication, where I supervise six ph.d.-students.

Beyond academia, I conduct practice-based curatorial research and consult on spatial experience design and business learning. I serve as a board member of the socio-economic business Roskilde Congress Center and previously was a member of the Innovation Fund Denmark's Industrial PhD Committee (2020-2021).

I thrive in open and collaborative environments and every day, I do my best to nudge academia in that direction.
