I work as a senior lecturer within the field of Pedagogical work where I focus on early childhood programs and preschool teaching. I have worked at the University of Borås since 2003, fulltime since 2008. Before that, I engaged in applied research and policy analysis related to children, families, and early childhood programs in the US - in a foundation (the Packard Foundation, Los Altos California) and before that at the National Center for Children in Poverty, Columbia University, New York.
My doctoral thesis is from 1985 at Cornell University, titled ”Local moves and social networks: The changing social worlds of mothers and children in three cultural groups”, focusing on families in the US and Sweden.
Currently, my focus is on preschool teacher education.
