I am currently doing a Ph.D. project related to the wider project 'Transition program to education'. Additionally, I have a master's degree in Psychology and Communication Studies from Roskilde University, as well as a postgraduate course in Psychotherapy (MPF).
I have been employed as a research assistant on several qualitative research projects mainly dealing with vulnerable young people in education and initiatives that help young people to overcome barriers in order to finish an education. My Ph.D. thesis also deals with these issues. With my Ph.D. project, I intend to both evaluate specific launched trials, and contribute new ways of understanding 'education retention' as a procedural and ambiguous phenomenon.
Field of research:
Since 1995 I have, more generally speaking, been occupied with young people, the relationships they form, their worldviews and self images they create, the problems they encounter, the coping strategies they either possess or do not possess, the importance of gender and many other topics related to young people and vulnerable young people. I have worked with young people both in the form of qualitative research, documentaries, education, therapy and counseling.
