I am a PhD. student in mathematics education (expected to graduate by May 2015). While a student at WMU, I have had many opportunities to develop professionally: collecting classroom observation data as part of a research project; coding and analyzing transcribed data; managing a database of instruments designed to measure aspects of mathematics curriculum; presenting at state and national conferences; serving on the proceedings committee of a North American conference in mathematics education; teaching undergraduate courses; facilitating teacher workshops.

My primary research interest concerns the use of mathematical technologies in the classroom.  I am experienced with graphing technologies, CAS, dynamic geometry, statistical software, and spreadsheets.  I am most intrigued by the use of mathematical technologies to support the robust concept of function.
