Research Interests

Both my research and teaching interests involved the preparation and ongoing development of mathematics teachers from elementary levels to college instruction. I am particularly interested in the nature and structure of the mathematical knowledge that math teachers at all levels need in order to teach. I am also interested in better understanding how we can work toward equitable outcomes in mathematics education.
