Eric (he/him/his) is a research associate for Teachers As Learners: Studying the Role and Impact of Tools in Teacher Learning (PI: Hala Ghousseini). They are investigating how teachers' thinking and sensemaking may support or constrain their learning to promote disciplinary argumentation in the context of practice-based professional development called a Learning Lab, which centers teacher learning on the activities that characterize their daily work.
Originally from Los Angeles, Eric obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics Education at the University of Georgia. Along with his interest in teacher learning, he is interested in understanding how teachers and students learn to use mathematical drawings to understand mathematical concepts in K-8. His work can be found at his website.
Outside of work, he plays competitive volleyball and aspires to win the Great British Bake-Off (he's not British). His trivia specializations are vexillology, musicals, and all things Will & Grace.
