My research investigates how people learn through interaction and conversations. Theoretically, I am attempting to reconcile cognitive and sociocultural theories of teaching and learning in order to design better learning environments. My work is grounded in the disciplines of mathematics and science education. Additionally, my work explores how to use technology to spark and support productive conversations in classrooms.

Empirically the model of learning I am developing is driven by studies that examine:

  • The ways in which material, representational tools (e.g., visual and computationally enhanced displays,
    symbol systems, etc.) shape the mathematical activity, reasoning, and learning of students
  • The ways individuals construct meaning around these tools and representations
  • The ways that mathematical discourse and discourse communities shape the learning process
