PhD in Youth Studies, Aalborg University and MA in Psychology and Communication Studies from Roskilde University.
Field of research:
My research area is marginalized young people on the margins of the educational system. I participate in evaluations and research projects exploring projects aiming at helping the young people to enter and complete ordinary upper secondary education. My focus is mainly social constructionist and I am more generally occupied with young people, their relationships, their worldviews and self-images, their challenges, coping strategies and many other topics related to young people and vulnerable young people.
