Governing Body Fellow

Andreas Stylianides is Professor of Mathematics Education at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. Previously he held an academic fellowship at the University of Oxford and, before that, a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California-Berkeley. A Fulbright scholar, he received MSc degrees in mathematics and mathematics education, and then his PhD in mathematics education, at the University of Michigan. His research in mathematics education is committed to understanding and acting upon problems of classroom practice. A premise underlying this dual commitment is that, by engineering ways to address problems of practice, one develops also a better theoretical understanding of the processes (didactical, cognitive, epistemological, etc.) underpinning the problems.┬áHis research spanned levels of education and has received support from the Spencer Foundation and the Economic and Social Research Council in England. He was the Deputy Editor of the International Journal of Educational Research, he guested edited journal special issues on topics related to his research, and he has served on the editorial boards of Research in Mathematics Education, Science and Education, and the International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education. He received an American Educational Research Association publication award for his 2007 article “Proof and Proving in School Mathematics.”
