"Listening is an art that few of us learn to develop, despite the fact that it makes us better communicator." By me, today :)


As an Assistant Professor of Mathematics, my primary roles are to teach undergraduate courses and to coordinate our developmental math courses.

My research threefold: Primarily, I am carrying out a comprehensive quantitative analysis of the high school mathematics courses of New York City public schools. Second, in the broad area of STEM education, I concentrate on Mathematics and Engineering Education with emphasis on policy and pedagogical innovations. Lastly, I have research collaborations in the areas of “technology for social good”, and “the role of the university in the innovation ecosystem. I am also interested in the pedagogical preparedness of prospective and in-service teachers of mathematics, and STEM doctoral students.
