Eryn is a PhD candidate in the Program in Mathematics Education at Michigan State University. Eryn is currently dissertating and plans to defend in March, 2016.

Eryn's research interests include understanding and supporting teachers’ professional decision-making about instructional use of technology in mathematics teaching and learning.

Eryn is generally interested in finding, creating, and using technology to support mathematics teaching and learning. After earning her B.S. and M.A. in Mathematics, Eryn taught as a mathematics instructor at Minnesota State University for four years. Eryn enjoyed teaching but was curious about getting smarter about her students’ mathematical thinking and struggles, and about how she could use technology to support them in learning mathematics in new ways (as opposed to using technology merely to make mathematics easier to do. Or worse: using technology only because it's new, pretty, or popular).
