I have been a faculty member at the University of Iceland School of Education since 2014. I am currently within the Faculty of Subject Teacher Education.
I completed MA in philosophy from Brown University in 1984, and PhD in Education from the University of Iceland in 2013.
I was a teacher in a comprehensive secondary school in Akranes from 1986 till 2001 and, after that, first vice-principal and then principal of the same school.
Publications in Icelandic include books on philosophical topics, papers on philosophy, social issues, and literature as well as translations of poetry.
