In 2013, my collegue Jérome Proulx (UQAM) and I created the Mathematical Activity and Epistemology Lab. As part of our activities, we run a regular seminar, the Montreal epistemology, mathematics and education circle together with Nadia Hardy (U.Concordia). We also just started a new Journal, the Chronicles of research on epistemology and mathematical activity (www.chronicles.uqam.ca).

Recent Achievements

I strongly believe in bringing people together to work on ideas and exchange, should they be researchers, teachers, graduate students, and so on. I thus regularly participate in various events and their organization, and also sometimes organize them myself:

  • 2014: Organization of a second Technology Mathematics and Education Conference (website)
  • 2013: Organization of a first Technology Mathematics and Education Conference (website)
  • 2012: Organization of a conference on Mathematics Education Across Institutional Levels (website)

Being a very creative/artistic person at time, I take joy in designing posters and website such as this one, the others linked above, or my official website at UQAM (here).

I also program applications for teachers and students such as a Crackable claculator or an Adjustable number grid, simulators, etc. (see my Resources website).

Feel free to contact me for more information!
