In 1995 I earned my Licentiate of Philosophy in Sociology from Lund University and my Master’s Degree in Sociology from University of Oregon in 1978. I have worked as a researcher and lecturer at the Institute of Research Policy and then from 1996 at the Department of Gender Studies, Lund University.
From 1998 to 2004, I served as Director of Studies and worked as Head of the Department of Gender Studies from 2011 to 2016. I retired in 2017.
I have received two teaching awards, the Lund University Prize for Contributions in Teaching and Educational Development in 2005 and the Faculty of Social Sciences Prize for the Course of the Year in 2002. In 2011, I was promoted to Excellent Teaching Practitioner and have been a member of the Teaching Academy at the Faculty of Social Sciences since its establishment.

Current Research and Teaching
My research interests focus on gender, technology and science and more recently on teaching and learning in gender studies. My current research is an historical reflection of the teaching and development of gender studies education.
My teaching has included gender studies broadly and science and technology studies. Earlier I was active in the development of the educational program at the Department of Gender Studies and taught in courses from the introductory to master level. I also led and contributed to the development of the Masters of Social Studies of Gender at the Faculty of Social Sciences and served as the program director from 2007 – 2013.
