# Research

My research focuses on the teaching and learning of undergraduate mathematics. Much of my recent work has focused on the role of examples in conjecturing and proof. I am also interested in support structures in mathematics for first-year undergraduate students (as alternatives to developmental math) and creating equitable learning opportunities for all students at the undergraduate level.
