Short autobiography:

I am a PE teacher and my research focus is about health in children and adolescents with special focus on physical activity and sport.

Reason for joining: To meet researchers for future cooperation in projects about young people’s view on appearance. Another focus is on how teachers perceive and interpret appearance among their pupils. A third perspective is on elite sportsmen and sportswomen and how their appearance is presented in media.
