My interests are the disciplines, the subjects, at university, especially Biology. Through science education research, it is possible to enlighten what it is that we know when we know something or what it is that we can, when we can do something. Teaching accentuates the knowledge and abilities of importance. It also formulates and structures the subjects. But the choices of what content to be taught are often made out of experience and tradition. My research focuses the recontextualisation of knowledge from research to teaching at university level, in order to be able to make the choices of content more transparent. Apart from research I also want to argue for a more inclusive view of the subject Biology. The school subject should be an important part of an ongoing dialogue between universities and schools, about what is most important and central for our students/society to know.
