Current research

I am currently part of the research project SCOPE. In the project, we investigate Danish children and young people’s science capital as it evolves over time. Science capital can help us understand how some children and young people are recognized within STEM, while others are not. In the project, we seek to understand how resources and experiences influences interests in STEM and experiences of (not) fitting in. I am part of the qualitative SCOPE team, where I am conducting workshops, interviews and doing ethnographic fieldwork with children and young people from the age of 6 and up.
