About me 

I am Chair of Mathematics Education at the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa, and a Visiting Professor at King's College London.

 I have three inter-related research interests:

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

My 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.
I am a member of the following ECS research group:
Centre for Research In Education in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics with a specialism in mathematics education. 

For further details please see my Research Staff Profile.

Teaching and supervision

I co-supervise two doctoral students at KCL and when in London I contribute to the MA Mathematics Education.
