Dr. Sofie Kobayashi, Consultant and Guest researcher, University of Copenhagen
Sofie Kobayashi holds a PhD in PhD supervision. Her research focus is on the interaction in supervision, and the opportunities and conditions for learning that the interaction creates.

She teaches both supervisors and doctoral students in supervision, and her teaching continuously inspires her research. Her publications on supervision include multiple supervisors, supervision across cultures, coaching and supervision. Forthcoming research will look into the role of humour in supervision.
