Personlig profil

Meritförteckning

My study concerns the development of expertise in the context of life sciences. I am particularly interested in questions that deal with the challenges related to conceptual understanding of complex phenomena. In addition, I’m intriguided, how learning and teaching can support students' systemic understanding. In that, we need profound and versatile understanding of cognitive processes combined with investigation of learning of different hands-on skills. Therefore, I utilize both surveys and process-level methodology, such as eye tracking.
