Associate Professor – Mathematics Education
University of Tasmania
I have had a wide-ranging career, in which a passion for education has been a continuing theme, although I came to the field late in a formal sense. This delay in beginning a formal teaching pathway allowed me to enjoy diverse influences, including living in three different countries, and bring this life experience into my teaching and, later, research careers.
Mathematics and its teaching has been a long-term passion. As a classroom teacher and a university lecturer, I aimed to inspire my students through interesting and innovative activities, such as collecting data from a local cemetery. I became particularly interested in the assessment of mathematics and statistics, and this became a theme in my research career. I continue this interest today as a consultant and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Tasmania, working on national projects with teachers and schools.
