Read more about my interests in research.

In my dissertation "Assessments of young people's mobility: A sports science problematization and validation" I study various aspects of children's and young people's mobility ability, including how movement ability is written and assessed in the subject of physical education and health, as well as in tests and assessment tools.

The focus is also on how the content of movement tests has consequences for who is considered to have or not have a good ability to move.

Furthermore, it is studied how assessed developed and less developed mobility ability at the age of 15 is related to taste and interest in physical activity nine years later.

I am also a participant in the research group Research in Education & Movement Culture, which is an interdisciplinary research group that conducts research in the humanities and social sciences on movement, culture and society.
