Frida has a PhD in disability research from the the School of Education and Communication, Jönköping University.
Frida's thesis work "Everyday life in preschool - Swedish and international approaches" contributes with a new observational method to study children's and preschool staff's everyday environments and activities in preschools in Sweden, Portugal and the US, as well as children's participation in the Swedish preschool free play.
Frida is also involved in the overarching research project PEPI (Participation and Engagement in Preschool International) which focuses on participation in preschool for children with and without need for special support in an international perspective. The aim is to study the relation between the preschool environment and children’s participation in preschool here and now, and over time, and to see if the relation differs between children in need of special support and typically functioning children.
Frida has a one-year master’s degree in Psychology from Örebro University, and has in her previous studies focused on preventive interventions, and more specifically, the effect of different parental programs to reduce behavior problems among children and youth.
Frida belongs to the research environment CHILD.
