### About Me

I am a lecturer in the department of Applied Mathematics in the chair of Applied Analysis. My teaching focus is on first-year courses, typically calculus and linear algebra. My research interests are in the field of mathematics education and engineering education. I run the Mathematics Education Reading Group in my department.

I taught and carried out research at the University of Cape Town 1998-2017 (mostly in the engineering academic development programme ASPECT) and joined the University of Twente in 2018.

From August 2021 to June 2023 I am an EEMCS Teaching and Learning Fellow. In this role, supported by 4TU-CEE, I take part in challenge-based educational initiatives.

### Education

I teach calculus and linear algebra to first-year students in a variety of programmes, primarily Advanced Technology and Electrical Engineering. I also teach a premasters course in Fourier series and Laplace transforms.

I am also involved in the intercultural competence line in the Applied Mathematics Department.

The "courses" listed below are the modules including the calculus and linear algebra units I teach.
