Paul Hernandez Martinez

I study how people teach and learn mathematics at university and how their backgrounds and environments help or hinder their attainment and identification with the subject.

In these pages you can read more about my

background and academic work.

- This year in July I will be attending an academic BEtreat in Grass Valley, California with Ettienne and Beverly Wenger-Trayner. I will be studying how to characterise emotions from a Social Theory perspective.
