Welcome to my Research Page

My research is focused on the teaching and learning of advanced mathematics. If you click here, you can find my Curriculum Vitae. I am involved in a number of research projects including two NSF-funded projets I am directing as the principal investigator:


The TAAFU (Teaching Abstract Algebra for Understanding) project is focused on a student-centered inquiry-oriented group theory curriculum.

The JAGUAR (Justification and Argumentation: Growing Understanding of Algebraic Reasoning) project is focused on mathematical justification in middle school mathematics classrooms.

I am also a member of the project team for the MAA project Characteristics of Successful Programs in College Calculus (CSPCC).
