Originally I am a computer scientist with a masters degree in computer science and mathematics. After getting a teacher certification, I worked for 10 years as a teacher in mathematics and programming in a Swedish gymnasium, grades 10-12. As a teacher I worked with overcoming the institutional barriers to using technology in mathematics education.
I am currently pursuing a PhD in educational research with focus on didactics of mathematics. My area of research is programming in compulsory school. In addition to this I also teach mathematics at Lund university, and work with building a national web site for ICT in mathematics education under NCM (the National Centre for Mathematics education).
