Began: Fall 2016

Research interests: Sunghwan is interested in exploring complex natures of human interactions in urban mathematics classrooms in relation to teacher authority, student agency, and institutional power.  In particular, Sunghwan likes to know how urban mathematics teachers’ identities and epistemological dispositions are shaped by their racial/cultural backgrounds and institutional power and ways to disrupt inequitable teaching practices and move toward equity and social justice in urban mathematics education.
