Curriculum Vitae

 

I am dedicated to better understanding how to support and characterize students’ meaningful learning of mathematics with multiple representations, and linking theory development with practical applications in school mathematics curriculum and instruction.

Recent strands of my research and practice work include:

  • learning trajectories for students’ conceptual understanding of function
  • characterizing and supporting students’ representational fluency
  • a learning progressions approach in mathematics education research and practice
  • bolstering links between research and practice through communication, collaboration, and community
  • exploring the intersection of mindfulness and mathematics to support social, emotional, and cognitive well-being
  • humanizing mathematics through a heart-centered pedagogy, reality pedagogy, and social justice
