I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Education, with a background in education and critical sociolinguistics ethnography. My research interests lie in the intersection of communicative practices, higher education, gender and race dimensions and how they interact in the (re) production of social inequality in the university context.

I am a member of FOMU (Difference and Power in Education) research group in the Department of Education and the Foundational Questions in Gender and Sexuality Research at SKOK (Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies). I am also co-coordinator of IMER Jr network part of IMER (Migration and Ethnic Relations) in Bergen.

My research project explores the doing of inclusion in a Norwegian university, with a focus on women with an ‘immigrant background’. It is an ethnographic study of the everyday doing of inclusion in the institution to explore and explicate how inclusion is understood, enacted and operationalized in the university paying attention to the effects at the individual and institutional level.
