I am an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University, with a joint appointment in the Dept. of Teacher Education (in the College of Education) and the Program in Mathematics Education (in the College of Natural Sciences). My Ph.D (2009) is from the University of Michigan, and was a joint degree in Mathematics and Education awarded by the Mathematics Department and the School of Education.
My dissertation focused on the capacity of the secondary Geometry course to faithfully represent authentic mathematical values and practices, and the extent to which school mathematics can cultivate a mathematical sensibility in students. Current research interests include an analysis of the secondary "Algebra 2" course, and an investigation into the mathematics education practices of home-educated students.
