I have a PhD in mathematics and also one in mathematics education. My PhD in mathematics education focused on issues to do with mathematics in preschool, particularly to do with the professional development of preschool teachers and childcare workers. My main work is within the teacher education from preschool to upper secondary school.

My research interests are wide ranging, covering both mathematics and mathematics education for a range of ages. I have also published extensively with the research group, Young Children's Mathematics.
