2008-ongoing: Associate professor in mathematics education

2011-ongoing: Study coordinator for studies in mathematics at the department (part time)

2004-2017: Currently members of the steering board to MatRIC (The National Centre of Excellence for Research, Innovation and Coordination of Mathematics Teaching: http://www.matric.no/), and the steering board for the PhD-program in mathematics Education, Previously, I have been in the steering board  at the Faculty of Technology and Engineering, and the steering board for Teacher Education at UiA. 

Extensive experience as examinator in Mathematics and Mathematics Education at different institutions in Norway, and external examinator of approximately 30 master theses in Mathematics Education. Severeal external jobs such as expert panels for scientific positions in Norway, and in expert panel for NOKUT (the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education) for applications for accrediation of Uinversity Colleges in Norway applying for 5-year master programmes in teacher education. 

Academic interests

Teaching and supervision: Currently supervision of several bachelor, and master students in Mathematics Education. and is the main supervisor for three PhD-students in Mathematics Education. Some teaching at the doctoral program in Mathematics Education, and previous years I have taught kindergarten teacher students, teacher students, master students mathematics and mathematics education courses. Have conducted successful supervsion of one PhD-student in Mathematics Education (Inger Norunn Nergaard i 2016:"Local knowledge in mathematics teaching: A product of professional action").

Main research interest:
Children’s learning of mathematics in kindergarten and early years at school.
Use of digital tools in the learning and teaching of mathematics

Projects

Internal research groups: 
Member of MERK - Mathematics Education Research in Kindergarten, and DIM - Digital Interactive Mathematics Teaching, subgroups in Mathematics Didactics: https://www.uia.no/en/about-uia/faculties/faculty-of-engineering-and-science/department-of-mathematical-sciences/our-research

External research groups: 
The current leader (2016-2019) for the European Network for Researchers within Early Years Mathematics http://cerme10.org/scientific-activities/twg-teams/ 

Ongoing external funded research projects:
The Agder Project 
Researching 5 years old children's learning outcome from an experimental program with a playful inquiry based approach to mathematics in kindergarten. I contribute as developer of the experimental program, researcher and the main supervisor of a PhD-student (Svanhild Breive: https://www.uia.no/en/kk/profile/svanhilb).  External funding from the Norwegian Research Council (2014-2018): http://www.uis.no/research-and-phd-studies/research-areas/early-childhood-education-and-care/the-agder-project/

Digital interactive mathematics teaching
The project is a collaboration with schools in the area of Kristiansand and UiA, where I contribute as researcher and main supervisor of a Ph.D.-student (Anders Støle Fidje: https://www.uia.no/en/kk/profile/anderssf) and master students. The aim of the project is to develop innovative teaching in mathematics in a digital environment at lower secondary school. The DIM-project is funded by the Regional Research Funds in Norway Agder (RFF-Agder), under the category  public projects (2015-2018): https://www.forskningsradet.no/servlet/web/prognett-rff-hovedside/RFF_in_English/1253976860326

MatRIC
Part of the steering board to MatRIC. MatRIC is a National Centre of Excellence for Research, Innovation and Coordination of Mathematics Teaching, and was awared UiA by the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT) in 2012.
