I started my PhD-candidate in January 2010 and due to two maternity leave I hope to be finished in 2016. Before starting my PhD I worked in Bosnia and Herzegovina for four years in various projects related to education, women and internal refugees.

My main interest within Human Geography is Development Geography and especially education and rural-urban diversities. 

Current research project

Within my research I am interested in how formal education is perceived by parents and teachers depending on geographical context, in quality of education and if Skipped Generation Households have a different perception of education. 

Research is carried out in rural and urban setting in Iringa region, Tanzania. The region is affected by the ongoing AIDS epidemic in Africa and thus many Skipped Generation Households are found here. Both qualitative and quantitative methods will be used in data collecting. 

The collected data will link to a theoretical framework of rural-urban livelihoods and social justice and capabilities approach.
