The aim of my research is to construct a "map" that charts the socio economic status (SES) of the Swedish, math PhD students. Based on Pierre Bourdieu's thoughts concerning the structure and function of the class system, this attempts to discover how SES affects both individuals and the subject itself within the culture of mathematics.

My supervisors are:
for mathematics: Lars-Erik Persson (main supervisor),
for math education: Gerd Brandell and Rudolf Straesser.
