Profile

Nicole Panorkou, an Assistant Professor in the department of Mathematical Sciences, completed her PhD in Mathematics Education at the Institute of Education (University of London). Nicole's thesis was a phenomenographic study of students' experiences of dimension in geometry. After earning her PhD, Nicole was awarded a Fulbright scholarship and worked as a post-doctoral researcher in multiple NSF-funded projects as part of the GISMO team at North Carolina State University. She contributed to the development of the resource TurnOnCCMath.net that maps the CCSS-M into learning trajectories, and she was also one of the instructors of the MOOC-Ed (Massive Open Online Courses for Educators) on learning trajectories and the CCSS-M.

Specialization

Nicole's research interests include development and validation of learning trajectories for K-8 mathematics; student learning of geometry, algebra and rational number reasoning; and a focus on the ways that technology and modeling can foster the utility of mathematical concepts.
