Teaching Assistant Professor

SAS Hall 4230


Areas of Expertise

My primary area of research is in the scholarship of teaching and learning of mathematics. In particular, I am interested in how students' spatial and visualization skills influence their success in mathematics courses, and how computer-based and physical manipulatives affect the learning process in these courses. I am also interested in mathematical illustration of research-level mathematics, especially for the purposes outreach and education.

Stepan Paul received his PhD in Mathematics at the University of California Santa Barbara. He was a Lecturer at California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo and UC Santa Barbara, and as a Preceptor at Harvard University before starting at NC State in 2020.
