Field of work
My educational background is from various disciplines across education, cultural and social studies, public health, and the disciplinary subject of health sciences. I have a Master of Philosophy in International Community Health and a Bachelor of Science in Preclinical Medicine. My PhD is in the doctoral program “Bildung and Pedagogical Practices” at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences. My doctoral project is titled “Food and Meals in the Kindergartens in Norway and China: Policies, Practices, and Emerging Themes”, and it aims at contributing to a better understanding contemporary food practices in Norwegian and Chinese kindergartens from a cultural-historical perspective.
I am a member of work area 5, Food and Meals in kindergartens, in KINDknow - Kindergarten Knowledge Centre for Systemic Research on Diversity and Sustainable Futures https://www.hvl.no/en/about/kindergarten-knowledge-centre/. I am also a member of the research group Kindergarten as an Arena for Cultural Formation.
My research interest lies primarily in the interdisciplinary area of health, particularly among women and children. Previously I have worked on women’s health.
