Information

My main research interest is how different languages express mathematical ideas. I am particularly interested in mathematical expression in non-Indo-European languages, including languages that have not formally been used in schooling. I am also interested in policies and practices associated with the use of different languages in mathematics education. Currently I am working in the Language and Communication group within the project ”Effects on the demand of reading ability when translating mathematical tasks between different languages”. I am also working on a project called “Improving the teaching of mathematics elementary schools by using local languages and cultural practices (Papua New Guinea)”, led by Dr Kay Owens from Charles Sturt University, Australia and in collaboration with a team from the University of Goroka, Papua New Guinea. My PhD research focused on the mathematical and educational implications of linguistic and cultural variation in spatial frames of reference preference in Iwaidja, a language spoken on Croker Island, Northwest Arnhem Land, Australia.

I have a BA majoring in Linguistics (1995), a BA (Hons.) in Text and Writing, a Graduate Diploma in Primary Education (2004) and a PhD in mathematics education (2013). I have a postdoctoral research position at Umeå University. Prior to that I was a lecturer in mathematics education at Charles Darwin University, Australia, coordinating and teaching mathematics education to preservice teachers.
