My research interests are varied, however projects I am involved with tend to have at least one of three focuses:
To make mathematics more enjoyable to teach and learn;
To explore the connections between research and practice;
To undertake experimental-research in actual classroom settings.
Below is a list of my recent peer-reviewed journal publications, with links to the corresponding articles.
