Dr Emma Rempe-Gillen FHEA, PhD, PGCert, PGCE, QTS, MSc, BSc (Hons)

Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education


I am a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education and the course leader for the BSc Mathematics with Education and QTS degree. My research interests are mathematics education, the use of technology and teacher development.


I am a Senior Lecturer in the Sheffield Institute of Education, specialising in teacher development and mathematics education.

My teaching career began at Stony Brook University, USA, where I taught undergraduate mathematics and statistics courses. After completing a PGCE and gaining QTS I taught mathematics in English secondary schools as a Leader of Learning Mathematics and an Assistant Headteacher before transitioning back to higher education. As an academic, I have worked at the University of Leeds, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Liverpool Hope University.


I am the course leader for the BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Education and QTS degree.


My research interests include

  • Teacher professional development
  • Teacher collaboration
  • Mathematics education in school (early years, primary, secondary or A level)
  • Mathematics at college and university level
  • Mentor development

Please contact me if you are interested in studying for a PhD or EdD in any of these fields.

My research on mathematics teacher professional development was supported by the ESRC and NCETM and won the Professional Development in Education Award from the International Professional Development Association.
