Dr Anna Danielsson
Reader in Science Education
My research is in science education. I am particularly interested in issues of gender, power, and, identity within the context of teaching and learning of science and technology. For example, I’ve conducted research on gender and social class within higher education physics, student interaction within group work in physics, and primary student teachers’ perceptions of themselves as teachers of science. I am currently PI of the project “Power, knowledge and identity in science and technology classrooms: Teachers' enactments of disciplinary discourses as establishing inclusion and exclusion” (2013-2015), funded by the Swedish Research Council. In addition, I also participate in research projects concerning engineering education and science teacher education.
Prior to joining King’s College in September 2016 I worked at the Department of Education, Uppsala University. I did a two year postdoc at Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, and hold PhD in physics specialising in physics education research from Uppsala University (2009).
I am a member of the ECS research group: Centre for Research in Education in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics
I contribute to the PGCE and MA programmes, and supervise postgraduate research.
