My work is interdisciplinary and concerns teaching, research and collaboration. I am the Representative of Dalarna University's Sustainability Council and the Work Environment Ombud at the School of Teacher Education and a member of the Review Committee of the Board of Education and Research at DU.

In 2008, I completed my Master of Philosophy in English Linguistics and Master of Education from Dalarna University. I have also had a Master degree in English Literature from National University in Dhaka, Bangladesh. During 1989-2001 I worked in various international organisations with child rights, human rights and integrated education for children with special needs.
