Recent and current professional activities:
My research activities and interests are quite varied. The LPS is a major research activity for me, but I am also involved in teacher in-service programs and maintain an interest in pedagogical issues, aspects of assessment, and humanistic approaches in mathematics education. I also have a keen interest in the history of mathematics.
