I am in charge of primary teacher education, where I teach the pedagogy of science in multidisciplinary studies, and I supervise bachelor’s and master’s theses. I am also the responsible person in the pedagogical studies of a subject teacher; there I teach the pedagogy of science mainly to physics, chemistry, and mathematics teacher students. I have participated in several European teacher education projects and spent autumn 2016 as a visiting Fulbright scholar at Stanford University, CA. My research interests are in inclusive science education and multidisciplinary STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) education. I also follow the NoS (Nature of Science) research.
