Paul Hernandez Martinez

Welcome to my website

I am a senior lecturer in Mathematics Education in the Department of Mathematics at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.
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. You can visit my institutional webpage here.

Do you want to do a PhD with me?
If you are thinking on doing a PhD in Mathematics Education and are looking for a supervisor, why don't you take a look at my research interests and a couple of examples of projects which I would be interested in supervising? Contact me to discuss ideas or possible topics for research.
