I explore how we adapt our words to our intentions and re-invent their meanings in our interactions in culturally diverse settings!
I am a Mathematics Education Lecturer at Te Kaupeka Ako | Faculty of Education. I joined Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury in 2022. I came to Aotearoa New Zealand in 2018 from India to pursue my PhD in mathematics education with focus on exploring classroom interactions in a classroom with culturally and linguistically diverse children. Before coming to Aotearoa, I worked as primary school teacher for three years, where I gained my teaching experience that largely inform my research interests and teaching practices. I am interested in - Classroom interactions and meaning making including gestures. - Multilingual and multicultural mathematics classroom contexts, - Storytelling and story-creating in Mathematics classrooms - picture books for teaching and learning of mathematics - Dialogic pedagogyIf you would like to talk about a research project, please send me an email.
