How can we re-imagine mathematics/STEM learning by attending to historically hidden ways of knowing?

I value working collaboratively with learners, teachers, community activists, and families.

I aim to co-design the learning environments that can leverage learners’ embodied and emplaced disciplinary experiences into transdisciplinary imagination toward social and environmental justice.
