    I coordinate and teach on the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Mathematics programme.

    I contribute to the PGCE Educational and Professional Studies module.

    I supervise masters' and doctoral dissertations in Education.

    Research Interests

    My research interests encompass both mathematics education and aspects of the philosophy of education.

    I am particularly interested in the influence of teacher attributes and organisational/societal factors on the pedagogical practices of mathematics educators and students' mathematical learning. I am also interested in the influence of active learning strategies on the affective domain in mathematics education and, from a philosophical/mathematical perspective, I retain an interest in the theoretical foundations of educational measurement models.

    My current main interests are:

    • The influence of teacher characteristics and organisational/societal factors on mathematics teachers' pedagogical practices and students' mathematical learning 
    • Strategies for improving students' mathematical learning outcomes
    • The mathematical and philosophical foundations of educational measurement models

    Willingness to take PhD students


    PhD projects

    - Mathematics education, particularly at post-primary level
    - Aspects of educational assessment and evaluation, particularly in relation to their theoretical foundations
