Area(s) 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.
