Jill is chair of Mathematics Education at the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa, and a Visiting Professor at King's College London.


Jill has three inter-related research interests:

  • Teaching mathematics in multilingual classrooms
  • Professional development of mathematics teachers
  • Mathematical work of teaching

Her current research is focused on mathematical discourse in instruction and analytic frameworks for this that enable descriptions of teaching and shifts in teachers’  practices over time. It emerges from a research and professional development project working in South African schools and builds on earlier research in language and the mathematical work of teaching.

Jill is a member of the Centre for Research in Education in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (CRESTEM) with a specialism in mathematics education. 


Jill co-supervises two doctoral students at KCL and when in London she contributes to the MA Mathematics Education course.
