I am gay/ queer and I am a mathematician and mathematics education researcher.//

I am a professor of mathematics at a small liberal arts college in the MidWest, but this year I am teaching high school in Manhattan. My PhD work was in algebraic geometry, but now I do mathematics education research. I am interested in epistemologies of mathematics and how students learn them, inquiry-based learning and teaching, and questions of power, identity, and justice, especially in the context of preparing future teachers to empower all of their future students. I love singing and getting meta. I believe that mathematics has been a tool of oppression for many marginalized groups in itself and , and I am working to change that from within the discipline.
