Mihyun Jeon
B.S. Mathematicas - Seoul Women's University
B.A. Internationl studies - Seoul Women's Universty
M.A. Mathematics Eduction - Sogang University
I am a third-year doctoral student in Mathematics Education at Indiana University Bloomington. I have experience teaching mathematics for secondary school students in South Korea and am currently teaching Geometry for undergraduates here at IU. I have investigated preservice secondary mathematics teachers' mathematical understanding and explored Korean middle schoool mathematics textbooks on function.

Justin Lin
B.A. Mathematics - Northwestern University
Ph.D. student in mathematics studying algebraic and geometric topology.

Weverton Ataide Pinheiro
B.S. Mathematics - University of Brasilia
M.S. Mathematics Education - National Taiwan Normal University
I am currently a Ph.D. student in Mathematics Education at Indiana University Bloomington. I particularly research how college-level students generalize in advanced mathematical domains, and how teachers learn to design and implement specific curricula that support secondary students to generalize. I also develop work in how students majoring in mathematics construct their mathematician identity.

Ben Rosenzweig
B.A. Mathematics - Yeshiva University
M.S. Computer Science - Indiana University
PhD Candidate in Computer Science studying applications of machine learning algorithms in phylogenomics.

Iwan A. J. Sianturi
B.Ed. Mathematics Education - State University of Medan, Indonesia
M.Ed. Mathematics Education - National Chiayi University, Taiwan
Ph.D. student in Mathematics Education. I had experience teaching mathematics for senior high school students in Indonesia and teaching algebra and calculus for undergraduates at a university in Taiwan. I was involved in preparing preservice teachers to teach in International Baccalaureate (IB) schools in Taiwan. I particularly focus on solving mathematical problems using efficient and flexible strategies by adhering to conceptual understanding. More details about me and my research are available here.
