Dr Paola Iannone to join TEMSE in Spring

The School of Mathematics is delighted to announce that Dr Paola Iannone will be joining the School as a Reader in the Theme of Technology Enhanced Mathematical Sciences Education this Summer.

Dr Iannone completed a first degree in mathematics at the Universita' degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza (Rome - Italy) and a PhD in Pure Mathematics the University of East Anglia (UEA). She worked as a senior research assistant and teaching fellow between the Schools of Education and Mathematics at UEA till she was appointed to a Lectureship in Educational Research in 2007, and then to a Senior Lectureship in 2012. She joins us from her current post as a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education at Loughborough University, to which she was appointed in 2016. Her research focuses on the teaching and learning of mathematics at post - compulsory level and has two strands: the summative assessment of mathematics at university, and mathematical reasoning and the use of technology in teaching and learning university mathematics. Her recent work includes the investigation of the role of Interactive Theorem Provers (Lean) in teaching first year mathematics.
