### Biography

I am involved in several research projects that address national and international education priorities with a particular focus on mathematics education in primary contexts. Prevalent themes in my work include teachers’ professional learning through collaboration and co-teaching in particular; issues of equity of educational opportunity; place and identity within and beyond school; and the role of emotions in teaching and learning. I am currently working on completing my PhD which investigates how collaborative inquiry supports teachers to promote valued educational outcomes for students at risk of underachievement in mathematics. At present I teach mathematics education in the Graduate Diploma of Teaching and Master of Teaching and Learning primary programmes. I have considerable recent classroom teaching experience, predominantly in primary school contexts but also across early childhood education, secondary, and tertiary contexts including in New Zealand and the Cook Islands.
