All my life, I have had a fascination and interest in studying the role and effect of using technology in teaching and learning. I have always enjoyed keeping up-to-date with the latest advancements in educational technologies, supported by emerging theoretical frameworks, and pedagogical approaches.
I've completed my Ph.D. in mathematics education at Simon Fraser University. My research reflects broad interests in the areas of equity in mathematics and STEAM education, computational thinking and the use of digital technology in teaching and learning, as well as self-regulated learning. I engage in qualitative and quantitative research approaches to explore how using technology for teaching and learning contributes to embodied cognition and understanding of the concepts. My doctoral thesis has focused on three different themes, which are: using technology for learning mathematics by preservice teachers, teaching mathematics to the undergraduate sight-disabled students and teaching mathematics using touchscreen-based devices to young children.
I am currently serving as an assistant professor at Alfred University (NY, USA) and research associate in computational thinking in informal STEAM education at Western University Ontario (ON, Canada).
