Teaching Interests

I enjoy teaching courses for mathematics majors, including analysis, topology, and abstract algebra. I also enjoy teaching courses in the calculus sequence and mathematics content courses for preservice and inservice mathematics teachers.

Research Interests

Mathematical knowledge for teaching secondary mathematics; problem solving; teachers' and students' epistemologies of mathematics.
