My research is driven by a desire to understand how humans have access to something as powerful and reliable as mathematics. I have found that many philosophical questions about the nature of mathematics have psychological answers. I ground my research in psychological models of students' mathematics, and collaborate with psychologists and neuroscientists, to find these answers.

I recently authored a related book, with Routledge publishing: The Psychology of Mathematics: A Journey of Personal Mathematical Power for Educators and Curious Minds. You can find more information on the book, along a discount code for ordering it, by downloading the flyer linked below.
