## Biography

I am a lecturer and researcher in primary and secondary mathematics education at the University of Otago, College of Education. Prior to this, I was a secondary school mathematics teacher in New Zealand and the Sultanate of Oman. My teacher registration and my continuing contact with the teaching community through research, educating pre-service teachers and professional development are important aspects of my identity. I was in direct contact with mathematics associations throughout New Zealand in my work as the Bevan Werry speaker for the New Zealand mathematics association in 2011-2013. I am passionate about exploring students’ relationships with mathematics and how these relationships change over time to form their mathematical journeys.
