My research profile focuses on intercultural perspectives on musical learning and creativity(ies). Since 2017 I am heading the research department in music education at Malmö Academy of Music. In my capacity as a board member of ISME I hope to contribute with my experiences from cross-cultural course development within music teacher education, and collaborative international research initiatives. I served as a commissioner in MISTEC 2008-2014, and look forward to continued visionary and practical work within the global context of music education. Both in my private and professional life, my interest for traditional fiddle playing plays an important role.
